    MacBook Pro... the Macbook will have a crappy integrated video chip, most likely. The MBP has a good video card, and you can dual boot XP for more gaming options. There really isn't much debate on this one.

    Only way to be sure is to wait. If the top end macbook has a 128mb X1600 it would be a pretty sweet laptop.

    As soon as the macbooks are released expect a speed bump on the existing macbookpro.

    The 1.83 will be replaced by the 2, and the 2 will be replaced by the current BTO 2.16

    The top end macbook will have a dual 1.83 and the lower a dual 1.66

    That's bascially the consensus from all the rumor and forums sites....

    And a crappy video card. Looking at the mini is a pretty good indication of what Apple has planned for the "consumer" MacBook. If it's not a GMA950, it'll be a very low end chip... like a 9550 or something.

    I'm still betting on the 950, though. Anyways, the question was "the best Apple laptop for gaming" and there isn't any chance the MacBook will have a better GPU than the MBP, so the MBP is the best gaming laptop Apple has.
