    Getting the new Aluminum MacBook 2.0ghz laptop and I have a few questions.

    1.) I know theres COD4 for the Mac. How does it run with my laptop? Bad?
    2.) I have never played DoTA but I am interested. So my question is, I know theres Warcraft 3 for the Mac and I was wondering if it'll run smoothly on my laptop?
    3.) How about a game like Left 4 Dead via Boot Camp? Will it run well?

    GG Client is a software which allows gamers to play online which is basically the main purpose of the client.

    It actually connects your "LAN" Game to the internet. It also allows you to chat in order to challenge players worldwide.

    Too bad, GG Client is for Windows OS only.

    yea yea. my bad.

    anyways. how does left 4 dead, cs: source and dota run on a macbook pro 2.5ghz?

    also, with the Aluminum MacBook 2.0ghz. How does CS: Source run? Is it good in the lowest settings? How about medium?
    And how about Left 4 Dead?

    Which do you prefer?

    I'm leaving for Europe on April 5. And Im buying a Mac tomorrow. And I plan to get Counter Strike: Source, Left 4 Dead and DoTA for my Mac to be played via Boot Camp.

    Now I know DoTA runs well in the normal Aluminum Macbook 2.0ghz. But how does CS and L4D run in medium settings? For these games to play well, is the MacBook Pro really needed?

    Lastly, has anyone heard of CrossOver Games? Has anyone done this? If so, how is it?

    actually. theyre all on different topic. one is just a brief question on Boot Camp, one is about the MacBook handling certain games. And this one is me asking which laptop to get.

    And they're all about you wanting to play Windows games on your prospective Mac.

    It's everybody's responsibility to keep the MUG tidy.

    I think this is an application which lets you play over the net like lan. you can play against other people just right at your home rather than playing in gaming cafes.

    oh, well, i thought it'd be better talk about one topic in one thread rather than talk about alot of topics in one. seemed more tidy that way to me.

    I've been trying to answer his queries since last night. Honestly, gagu, if gaming is so important to you, I guess you'd better buy a Windows-based gaming laptop like a Dell XPS.

    Is the MacBook Pro needed? Depends on the amount of detailed graphics you really need. Neither the MacBook nor the MacBook Pro are meant to be gaming laptops. They can play games but that's just a small part of it's real value.

    As much as i'd want macs to be gaming machines, i'd have to agree with enshong. I'm a gamer too (or at least i'd like to see myself as one) and i realized that gaming isn't the reason why you buy a mac. Get a good window's based laptop if you are a gamer - you can get two good ones for the price of one mac. You can run some old games on macs, Halo or Rainbow Six or something, but if you want high performance gaming... i don't recommend you get a mac.

    Besides... parang sayang lalagyan mo lang rin ng Windows mac mo. magkakabadsector lang yan. ;)

    hahaha! i dont need a windows. nor do i need gaming. its only when i heard of the boot camp where i said to myself "if i can have gaming. why not"

    so yeah. i want a mac. anyways. im now deciding between the pro and the plain one.
    enshong, you stated that you play cs and dota in your pro? it doesnt lag? because seriously, all i want is those two. and if the normal macbook can play games like left 4 dead and stuff. then i can stick to that.
