    Hello,

    Getting a new laptop this week for my fiancee, wondering if World of warcraft will run (and how well) on the system, here are the specs for the system i am planning on purchasing.

    Part Number: Z0FK
    2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Accessory kit
    SuperDrive 8x (DVDR DL/DVDRW/CD-RW)
    4GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM - 2x2GB
    iWork '08 preinstalled
    Keyboard (English) / User's Guide
    160GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm


    Thanks

    Specs:
    MacBook, iPod Classic, 8GB 3G iPhone, Time Capsule
    Check this out.

    BTW, it's cheaper (and very easy) to install your own RAM upgrade afterwards than it is to pay Apple for it.

    To Rock:

    The MacBook you're purchasing (I have the same one) has an integrated Intel graphics chipset (Intel GMA X3100). While it's a very good integrated graphics chipset and can display to high resolutions, it's not the best for games that require fast graphics like Warcraft. You really should have a machine with dedicated graphics such as you find on the MacBook Pro.

    Having said that, Warcraft will probably run OK. Adding more memory as has been suggested will certainly help.

    Regards.

    Thanks, yeah, I am going to be getting an iMac as well and it should run it perfectly, it is okay if it runs it on low graphics.

    4 Gb is as high as you can go. That should be plenty though, even if you decide to run XP or Vista. You're also getting an iMac? When you do, order the best graphics card offered. Have fun.

    Regards.

    I agree. I have the G5 and it ran great for a while, then started to slow and lag horribly. I installed an additional 2gb of Ram, putting me at 2.5gb. It now runs perfectly, and i no longer lag anywhere. Enjoy!


    Ever get frustrated with your mac? Just go work on Windows for an hour, then see how good you have it.
