Matt, you don't know your macs, so your comment makes you look like an idiot. WTG. Here's a history lesson for you:All G4-based laptop computers, be they PowerBooks or iBooks (even the G3-based iBook), had discrete graphics chips. In all cases, they were technically more equipped for gaming than many laptops that are still being "supported" by Blizzard. Intel-based Macbooks (not the Pro's) are the ones with integrated graphics. Notice that they are supported. The OP mentions they aren't sure whether they'll be supported, but they will. Intel's GMA solution can pull 64MB of a framebuffer anytime it's called for, even in OS X.Other than Blizzard just deciding not to maintain the G4 codebase for Wrath (and who knows, it might just work), 1GHz+ G4's should be able to handle WoW. If they really think it's CPU-limited, there are plenty of dual-processor G4's that are beasts even today. You just can't say that about the PC's of the same era.Bottom line: before spouting off insane QQ comments about someone's legitimate claim concerning a computer that is perfectly capable of running WoW and is being forced out by some strange decision by Blizz, make sure you do your homework.
