get a pc.

I believe most of the game developers won't bother making their game compatible with Mac platform, because it's such a pain in the *beep*.

Actually, it's better to just bootcamp a Mac and put Windows 7 on it. You get the best of both worlds then.

No, it's not...

Ya know, I've been an avid Windows only no matter what kind of guy since the dawn of it and still love Windows... but have recently picked up a MacBook Pro 17" 2011 Model with 8GB of Ram, the upgraded CPU, etc... and have to say... it runs Windows 7 better than any 'Windows' laptops with the same / near the same specs / price.

This has been my best Windows computer yet, lol. Anyway, back on topic... I'm really starting to enjoy the whole OS X experience, and although I can and do Bootcamp Win7, I'm in favor of OS X native clients... prevents the whole hassle of Bootcamping to Windows.

Blizzard (I know, I know, not the same... I get it...) has 18.9% of it's userbase coming from Mac... so the momentum and possibilities are there I would think, but I'm not one with any real experience in any of the departments of producing games, so I really can't say much other than I would support an OS X native client and although I have Win7 Bootcamped, have lately just gone after what runs natively, since none of the games out / coming out have really been that good enough to be worth the reboot.

Get a gaming company to make a game similar to DAoC with updated artwork / interface and that's something I would bootcamp all over until splooge came out. lol

EE is developed on DirectX, which was made by Microsoft, so only Windows OS has it. X-Legend would need to change EE to openGL to let MAC users play (rather that be a second or a whole new client, I don't know. Would have to look at WoW for that info). Otherwise, bootcamp windows, or use wine to play.

Another option you might want to look into is a program called parallels which lets you run both the mac and the windows operating system at once.

I personally do not know how well this program runs on a macbook pro as I have only ever used it on an iMac so I would strongly suggest you do some research to see if this program is right for you.

If you do find that this program is good for a macbook pro it would solve all of your wants as you can run windows under the Mac OS interface using coherence mode

Hope this helps
