    How are the framerates? For gaming, how do the new IntelMacs work out in comparison to Dells/Alienware/etc.

    I play World of Warcraft and it runs very damn well. Now, I can't compaire it to an XPS or anything. (Funny thing is, that WAS the machine I was going to buy before I bought my MBP)

    Anyway, I get anything from 20 to 60 FPS depending on the area. 40 people standing around you, plus 30 mobs on a BWL raid and I still get 20 FPS. Which is very playable.

    Keep in mind, thats with all settings maxed.

    Really? That sounds fairly excellent. I'd love a direct head to head of the MacBook Pro Vs the XPS and/or Top of the line Inspiron.

    You should go over to the "Games" forum under Mac Software.
    There are lots of posts and benchmarks with ppl running games. :)

    The Sims 2 Works excellent so far. I installed University too without a problem. It runs exceptionally well with great graphics and FPS!

    May be testing FFXI sometime too..
