    MBP i7 and 1080p?
    I'm getting a MBP i7 today and I would like to hook it up to my TV and sound system via HDMI. How capable is the MBP at running 1080p? Will I be able to play games fluidly at that resolution? Thanks.
    Don't know what I'm supposed to say, but I keep speaking these words anyway.

    You shouldn't have a problem I wouldn't think. The GPU in there is more then powerful enough to handle that resolution. In terms of games fluidly - it'd ultimately depend on the game and the settings within the game. The GPU that's in there is a class 2 mobile GPU, fairly high in the class 2 list if I recall correctly (see: Notebookcheck: Notebook & Laptop Reviews and News ) so it should handle games fairly well.

    You shouldn't haven't any problems playing back video at 1080p either.
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m, 16Gig ram; 2013 Mac Pro 6 core w/ D700, 16Gig Ram; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Linux; Apple TV (1080p version)

    Haha, 1080p isn't anything. I had a higher pixel density monitor on my powermac G5 with 32MB of video RAM back in 2004. It was an apple cinema display at 1920x1200. So yea, it'll be fine. Easily.
