    Thoughts On Buying MB: Will Left 4 Dead run smoothly?
    I've been considering buying a Mac Book for a while now, and with Left 4 Dead coming out in 2 weeks gives me another good reason to get a new computer (I have a really old Pentium 3 at my other house and currently using a crappy Dell as I type.) So I hope I don't get flamed for knowing absolutely nothing about Macs below this

    Unfortunately they aren't releasing Left 4 Dead for Mac but after Googling a bit, I read about Boot Camp which could run Windows for those apps you want to use that aren't compatible. I was thinking about buy the new 13-inch Mac Book with the X3100 or 9400M ($999-$1599). I was wondering if anyone could tell me if Left 4 Dead will run fine on this? Here are the tech specs from the official site:


    * Supported OS: Microsoft Windows XP / Vista / Vista64
    * Processor: Pentium 4 3.0GHz
    * Memory: 1 GB
    * Graphics: 128 MB, Shader model 2.0, ATI 9600, NVidia 6600 or better
    * Hard Drive: At least 7.5 GB of free space
    * Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card


    * Supported OS: Microsoft Windows XP / Vista / Vista64
    * Processor: Intel core 2 duo 2.4GHz
    * Memory: 1 GB
    * Graphics: Shader model 3.0, NVidia 7600, ATI X1600 or better

    Also wondering if Warhammer and WoW would run fine also. Thanks!
