Hi,

Just purchased my first Mac Book Pro 13" (I have had the Mini since then) and was wondering what kind of games people play on them. Mine is the cheapest on with 2GB ram which I will upgrade to 4GB at somepoint.

My current Sony Vaio FZ18L laptop (Which runs Vista and has 4GB ram) plays games such as WoW (World of Warcraft) at FPS of about 60. I haven't really brought it for games but more for a portable machine with battery life but I am curious as to wether people have any experience with gaming on it.

Thanks for your help.

Hello! We've got a huge thread of games played on the Aluminum Macbook (Now Macbook Pro). You will receive similar framerates/experiences on your Macbook Pro as it is virtually the same computer that all of the tests were done on. There's lots of stuff to sift through, but many games are covered! They are all done via Bootcamp and played on Windows XP/Vista. Take Care!

That thread needs to be be seriously stickied. There are so many needless threads about gaming on the new MBPs.
