These are the Mac system requirements for running Starcraft 2:

Minimum Starcraft 2 System Requirements for Mac

These are the baseline specs that you’ll need to run the game, if you are near the lower end of the settings here you probably won’t have great performance.

Mac OS X 10.5.8, 10.6.2 or newer
Intel Processor
NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT or ATI Radeon X1600 or better
12 GB available disk space
1 GB RAM (2 GB highly recommended)
DVD drive
Broadband Internet connection
1024X768 minimum screen display resolution

Recommended Starcraft 2 System Requirements for Mac

In addition to the system specs above like available disk space and an internet connection, to run Starcraft 2 the best on your Mac these are the recommended specifications:

Intel Core 2 Duo processor
4 GB system RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT or ATI Radeon HD 4670 or better
Obviously the better and newer your Mac, the better Starcraft II will perform on it.

Starcraft 2 System Requirements for Mac
You didn't give your Macs specs but I believe that your Mac comes pretty close to the recommended system requirements.

Intel Core 2 Duo (P7550, P8400, P8700) ("Penryn")
Up to 8 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M or NVIDIA GeForce 320M depending on your MBPs year.
1280 by 800 (native) screen resolution

My friend plays Starcraft 2 via Boot Camp and he has the same computer. He says it runs great.
