    OS X + Steam. Can you play any games from steam?
    I saw that Steam now works on OS X as long as you have an intel processor. Can you now run and use any game on OS X?

    I was told that HL1 and HL2 games would run.

    Not without a product like Crossover or Darwine. There is no native port of Steam for OS X, nor has the Source engine (the back-end of HL2) been ported.

    Products like Crossover and Darwine provide a translation layer so that software designed to use Windows APIs can run on another OS. It's not fool-proof, however, and many products don't work.

    More information here.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Interesting post. My neighbor finally bugged me enough to play some games so I finally loaded Boot Camp after two years of just using Fusion on occasion. We are using Steam in Windows and my new MBP 17" can play pretty much any game. I have never gamed on a laptop and it has been pretty cool. If your Mac has the goods - Steam and Boot Camp can definitely play well together. I wouldn't hold your breath though for a native Steam app.
