Thinking about buying a 13" Macbook Pro, with the RAM upgraded to 4 GB and the 2.26 ghz processor. I am using the computer for normal everyday stuff, pretty much media management and internet. No games will be played on the computer. My question is will the graphics card (9400m) be able to handle AutoCad 2008. I wont being creating anything 3D, only 2D drawings. I am already aware that many people think that the 13" display is too small, so please no comments about that--if anybody is running cad with the 9400m please let me know about your experience with it. I appreciate any insight on this. Thx

Yes it will handle it, but you should run AutoCAD via Bootcamp natively instead of virtualization or performance will suffer.
