I get mine tomorrow, and I was wondering if I would be able to play World of Warcraft, Battlefield 2, and Company of Heroes on bootcamp?

As I uderstand it the Uni-Bi version of CoD2 will run at minimal video settings. Civ IV uni-bi runs too.

I'd avoid any newer games running under parallells or Rosetta unless you run a macbook pro with non-integrated gfx.

alright thanks for the information, i would really like to try some call of duty2 and halo on my macbook in my spare time. i was a big fan of halo on xbox live, but i think the macbook could be alot more fun to play on since i can take it anywhere.

What about older games? Will they work with the Intel if they were designed for the old Mac processor? I am not a hardcore gamer, I just want to pass time playing fun games.

As a rule of thumb, anything running under Rosetta will need basically twice the horsepower as what is written on the box.

sim city 4: rush hour
runs. but runs very very slow, even on a small map. keeps the fan running at full tilt.

tropico 2
runs fine but maxes out the fan constantly. occasional crashes after a couple hours of play.

thinking about trying age of empires 2 or age of mythology.

Grand theft Auto San Andreas runs really well under bootcamp, haven't really tried much else tbh.
