Just ordered a MacBook Pro 15" with a 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x2GB, 500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm, and NVIDIA GeForce 9400M + 9600M GT with 512MB. Do you think I can run Empire: Total War on it with decent graphics and good frame rates?

That really shouldn't be a problem. The GPU, CPU and amount of memory are well beyond the requirements.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I'm looking at the new 13" Pro with a 2.53 GHz core, 4 GB or RAM, and the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M. I desperately want to be able to play Empire; I know there is enough RAM and the processor is fast enough, but I'm not sure about the graphics card.

Will it run?

Those system requirements are a joke. To run Empire smoothly, you're going to need a machine upwards of 3 GHz processor, 512 MB VRAM with a good graphics card, and 4 GB RAM.

So yes, it will "run," but I wouldn't expect great performance. Turning off some of the graphics options might help, and your machine is going to get piping hot.
