Hello,

Well i just got a macbook pro but made the mistake of not getting the hi-res screen. Which sucks because the apple store is pretty far from me.

Anyway heres the problem.

I just tried playing world of warcraft on my 17 inch macbook on a 1680 x 1050 resolution, and well everything is basically zoomed in and very close.

While in game i changed the resolution to a lower resolution and it looked like it allowed me to view more, but the display looked alittle blurry to me. So i have two questions:

1. The game seemed blurry on lower resolutions, if i continue to play on these resolutions can it cause damage to my card or my display?

2. Why exactly does it get blurry and is there any way to fix that?

Thank you in advance for your replies. This really sucks

Check in the interface options to make sure that the max camera distance is set so you can move the camera back further. Leave the resolution at the 1680x1500.

thanks for the reply, i'll try that. Although the zooming only becomes a issue in dungeons, like the deadmines for example since its in closed spaces.. doesn't allow me to zoom out that much.

I'm so zoomed in though that cant really see whats going on around me .

Yeah I had that issue when I upgraded monitors. The last patch 2.2 changed the video for Macs as well which contributes to the zooming. The allowed some new resolutions. 2.3 doesn't seem to have made any new changes to that.

I think im just going to go return this mac and get the hi-res screen, but it sucks because i already setup all the programs and configs on this mac how i like it.
