    Just thought I'd share a clip I found on YouTube of a guy playing HL2 on his MBP

    15", Core 2 Duo, 2.33 GHz, 2GB RAM, 120GB 5400RPM HD, ATI X1600 w/ 256MB, and Matte Screen. I used Bootcamp 1.1.2 to load Windows XP.

    I'm pretty impressed.

    Not that I'm much of a gamer, but at least I know I CAN play games if I want to.

    what else is interesting is, is with a 2.16 and 128mb vram, I can play the games just as smoother at max res.

    I play counter strike all of the time, I use ATItool and bump up the speeds a little bit, but its way smoother then I thought it would ever be.

    As an added bonus, the cheap TN panels used in Apple's LCD have very quick response times :)

    The first rev of MBPs could run HL2 flawlessly, so this isn't much of a surprise. This video would have been more seful if it showed Oblivion or FEAR framerates.
