Warcraft Frozen Throne for Mac is available, you don't need Bootcamp for this. I have no idea if Counter Strike is available.

Counter Strike: Native support on a Mac? Yes. Native support on Mac OS X? No, you need to do it via bootcamp.

Frozen throne, well, while it is not native support on an Intel Mac (blizzard didn't make a UB version of Warcraft), the graphics are crappy enough to run smoothly on Mac OS X.

right said Mr. Bond. Wait till january!

and oh, I am still looking for 3 more people who want to buy a mobile me family pack at super cheap rate.

in other news, I am waiting for a review of the apple in-ear buds. too bad for the iphone people that they only *fully* work with new ipods. The volume buttons don't work on the iphone as noted by many testers.

my friend have 5 MACs and 2 Windows PC. how can a mac access a windows share and also work with permission set with the shared folder and also map a windows shared drive. Actually i just want to make a network drive in windows PC so all can save their work in that shared drive and can access them on an MAC or PC and also that no one else can view their files unless the owner adds some read permission for the other user.

just for some info : They are not in a domain, they are individual MAC and PCs. so is there any solution for this. they all are connected together with the help of a switch just used to share a internet connection.
i have a budget for a NAS server if required
atleast tell me that how to map a network folder as a drive in MAC PC with OS 10.4

thank you

Replacing the hard drive and memory requires merely the removal of the battery, and Apple provides do-it-yourself manuals for these tasks.

What Does that mean? Can we upgrade the RAM and HDD without violating warranty? :confused:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Guys, After spending some time with my iPod Touch; I'm thinking of buying the MacBook Base Model as my first Notebook. (Impressed by Apple.. I hate the pricing though, did someone say that before? :D )

Is it a good time to go for the MacBook, taking the following things in mind?
1. The Dollar is still pretty strong. So Prices will be high for the time being.
2. Heard rumours about Snow Leopard coming soon. If I buy a Mac right now, I wont get a free upgrade to Snow Leopard, as long as Steve Jobs is the CEO!
3. Will the base model be available even after Snow Leopard comes out?

ANy help here Guys?

1. Well, who knows whats going to happen to the dollar rate.
2. Snow Leopard won't be free.
3. Hard to say. I think it should be there for at least another year though.

Btw, Goa Apple store has the base model for 46k or so I think. Combo drive 2.1Ghz version.

Thanks...
There's something more I gotta ask. About that Ram upgrade part, see my prev post... :neutral:
so if I can wait for Snow Leopard; I should. Right?
Yeah yeah, with tech-stuff waiting doesn't make much difference... even then this aint the perfect time for buying the Mac...isn't it? yes, I can wait 2 months max.

One more thing. Can the base model utilise 4Gb Ram?.. Leopard is 64-bit, right?

You can upgrade RAM and Hard-disk on your Macbook without affecting warranty, but if you damage other things while trying to upgrade them on your own, Apple wont fix it for free.

^^ oh wow. interesting that too with apple.. :D

1. How good is leopard with 1Gb ram? on default macbook?

2. do macbook base model and the leopard os, both support 4gb?.. unlike vista 32bit which can't address more than 3.2gb?
 
With 1GB it'll do very fine.Much more than what you'd be expecting from it.Just go for it!4GB?Are you serious?Mac OS X won't make much use of that much memory.Just extend it to 2 GB and you're done.In fact,even that's not needed.1GB is fine enough.
Just in case you're buying additional RAM,don't ever buy from Apple.They overcharge like hell!

1) Works fine.

2) Yes, the previous generation was based on Intel 965 chipset and newer one is based on nVidia 9400. Both models support 4GB and Leopard being 64bit UNIX-based OS can fully utilize 4GB memory.
