    9600M GT is OK for gaming and almost a must if you're more than a casual gamer. It's still a laptop card so don't expect desktop quality gaming performance but it plays all games with nice graphs

    Apple doesn't make gaming laptops or desktops.

    Should be better than the GMA X3100 in any event, which could not even manage Virtua Tennis 3 to my sadness.

    this isnt gaming, but i have noticed a big difference between the 9400 and 9600 when using any CS4 program.

    i know what asus ur talking about, get that it would destroy a macbook pro i have the gateway p seires with the 9800 with 1 GB and it will run anything so the 260 would run anything on high

    (sorry if thats kinda confusing)
