I run WoW on a MacBook Pro (the 9600 GT version) in Windows XP and it does run ok, though not as good as I was hoping. With graphics all the way up except shadows at 1680x1050 I get around 15-30 fps in Dalaran. 25 man Ulduar can get as low as 8 if I don't drop a lot of settings, so I tend to play with everything on lowest (still at 1680x1050 - the native resolution of the monitor I have connected to it) except spell detail at half and projected textures on (otherwise I can't see some important effects) and get around 15-20 most of the time in a raid.My girlfriend just bought a Sony Vaio with mostly lower specs (slower CPU, lower rated graphics chip, but more RAM), running at 1920x1080 with everything at full except shadows and it destroys my framerate (she rarely dips below 30). I'm not sure why :/
