I play WoW on a Macbook Pro 3.1 (santa rosa) with the nVidia 8600m video. These cards are affected by the nVidia issue that the bumps are not well designed and can fail. So far, its my 4th motherboard in this machine. On some sites, they have reported that the late 2008 and newer MBP (running on NVIDIA GeForce 9400M + 9600M GT) *may* also be affected. Considering that WoW (especially since WOTLK) has my MBP running hotter than an Infernal, I think it may play a role in the bumps failing faster. Who knows?Definetely get a cooling mat, and an external keyboard because that aluminum casing gets your fingers quite toasty.And AppleCare extended warranty.My 2 cp.
