    MacBook Pro gaming capabilities
    Probably getting a Macbook Pro 2011 model 13" base model this weekend.
    My question is about its gaming capabilities. I want to know what the limits are for it, I am not a serious gamer but like to play some games on the weekend.
    The ones I am interested in and please also tell me whether they are mac compatible (without booting windows) on the 13" model.

    Command and Conquer 3
    COD Modern Warfare 2
    Starcraft II
    Age of Empires Asian Dynasties

    Some I am unsure of mac compatiblity (please tell me if they are)
    Assasins Creed Brotherhood
    Fallout 3 or New Vegas.

    Yeah so if they do work on Mac, how well? I want to have at least 3 games on it.

    Thanks in advance,

    them games will run okay on low settings. maybe medium at a push.

    Age of Empires 3 & Starcraft 2 are the ones I have, I think CnC 3 has a mac port, but it will be far more expensive than the windows version.

    I dont think Fallout NV is OSX compatible.

    the rest are, I am unsure about ACB.

    My main concern is COD followed by Starcraft II. When you say low or medium settings, is that something me, being a first time COD player and 14 yo going to really impact on me? I want to play online.

    Here's a test on you tube on COD: Modern Warfare with the base line 13in MBP

    BTW, I have the base line 13in MBP and i play WOW3 and so far i'm fairly satisfied with the graphics.

    None of those should give you trouble running on lower settings. I'm not sure about compatibility, but I'm sure Google could tell you!
