Your responses are much appreciated.
If you end up getting a MacBook Pro I suggest getting the $2199 (if possible) model with the 6750M
1GB, it's a fair bit better than the 6490M
in terms of gaming. Click the links and scroll down for FPS with those cards (keep in mind the different resolutions).
I'm not sure if either of those will be good enough for your gaming needs but you should get a good idea from those links. Click the FPS with the coloured backgrounds (i.e green) to see what computer is used -- if the name of the computer is red (not black) you can open it in a link and see all it's specs, etc.Edited by steelbom - 4/21/11 at 9:30pm
