Standard edition is $60 US at least. So your adding on $40 there. If if you want the digital deluxe, it's still $80, so a little bit of an over estimate on your part. Unless you don't live in the US and it costs more in your country, but you are saying bucks, so I would assume your talking about US currency. Still, even at $200 it is less than buying a windows rig that would run the game at medium graphical settings. But if your in the market for a Windows computer anyway, then sure. But if your just going to buy a Windows rig for the game, I don't see how this is any different than spending $160 to play it on your Mac. As far as WoW being released later for MAC's, this is the only thing I could find, it was on a forum dated November 4th, 2004. According to this, it looks like they were released at the same time, but I didn't play WoW at release and can't find any information on a Mac release date separate from the original November 23, 2004 release date.
