Warhammer Online on a MacBook 2008 running XP

Obsessable: "One of the questions that has been on everyone's minds since Apple announced their new laptops on Tuesday has been whether the improved NVIDIA graphics cards that Steve Jobs spent so much time discussing on stage would mean that Apple's newer laptops would make good gaming machines. While it's unlikely that Apple is going to make any large moves towards becoming a new gaming platform to rival the current PC market, these new graphics cards combined with OS X's Boot Camp, which allows you to install Windows XP or Vista on a separate partition on your Mac's hard drive, allow Mac owners to install all the PC games they want on that partition. The big question is: can the MacBook really handle the graphics required by graphic-intensive games built for PC gaming machines?" (Culture, PC, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning)

The new macbooks are amazing.

If you've checked out the disassembly pics you'll agree.

Apple is finally giving gamers some more attention.

Gaming notebook PCs are just pointless. They're overpriced and usually aren't competitive with similarly priced desktops. I should know, as last year I bought this one that I'm using for $1500. I was psyched to know that it had an nVidia GPU, but after dug into the system found out it was an 8600m GS. It would have been alright if it was a GT, since that would've meant 32 stream processors instead of 16.

Moral of the story: it still would've meant beans compared to my sweat Phenomx49850/Radeon3850x2 rig...that I built for 1/4 less.

While i will not dispute that the new macbooks are pretty awesome (albiet pricey), Warhammer is not a graphics intensive game. The fact that the macbooks can run warhammer is not a milestone.

why did this dumbass buy a mac in the first place when hes going to install xp anyways? just get a 700$ laptop and OMG you just saved yourself 1000$ and got the same results.
