Hi Guys

New guy here on the forum and still deciding whether I should get a MBP or not. I am looking at the MBP 15" 2.66 i7 model. I will be using it to edit images and vids you know the basic stuff but the big question is will it run Flight Simulator X? I will obviously run FSX on Windows trough Bootcamp.

The other game will be Starcraft 2 but it will be available on Mac so no problem there.

Thanks for the advice in advance

It will easily run FS X. I can run it on my older MacBook with integrated graphics (not really great but it runs) so I know that a MBP 2.66 i7 model with discrete graphics will work. Same for Starcraft 2.

You do understand that you will need to purchase a copy of Windows to install via Boot Camp? (BTW, neither game will run in a VM well enough to be useable.)

Regards.
