Hey yall, new here. I am looking to upgrade from my dell to a macbook pro. The main thing that was a deal maker was that I can run windows. Now I know there's no real need which I get, the only reason for running windows for me is to play my games. everquest 2, left 4 dead 1 and 2, stalker, and a deal others. I was hoping I could get some feedback on the quality of gameplay, not these necessarily but more and overall opinion. What if any problems there are or have been. Thanks.

Gaming on a notebook is blah. Overpriced and underpowered compared to a dedicated gaming rig.

That's the thing, I'm not a hard core gamer. I have the games I like and play them on and off. I don't spend constant hours upon hours playing. Just enough to entertain me.

Just came to say this. Crysis, L4D2, MW2, Mafia2, Bioshock and many other games runs and plays fine on my 2009 MBP 13''. They run perfectly fine in the lowest screen resolution possible with graphics setting set to 'High'.

The 2010 models have even better GPUs so there shouldn't be a problem running games.
