    Heavy gaming like Doom 3, Quake 4 and the likes, no. It has an Integrated Intel GMA950. Light gaming, sure thing.

    No personal experience but 13.4" does seem quite small for games, would you not consider getting the MacBook Pro?

    1, the chip stinks for gaming
    2, it is kind of small for gaming
    3, it's a mac, there's not a lot of games available for it

    i have a macbook running dual boot with windows xp. Heres the games that work ok on my xp side.

    - Frozen Throne for Warcraft
    - World of warcraft at lower fps
    - counter strike

    they stink on the mac side for some reason, it doesnt game that well, but it can do some older games

    I've personally have heard nothing but good about gaming on XP via bootcamp, that said the 13" screen is to small for what you want I would suppose.
