    Hi Guys,

    I'll be looking to buy a new MBP (with the 6750M) very soon, and am interested to know how they perform with games.

    If anyone who already has one (15" or 17") has Boot Camp installed, any chance we could get some Starcraft 2 and Crysis/Warhead settings/resolution/fps happening here? Or whatever other demanding game you have on offer?

    No, I don't want a Windows PC notebook.

    15" i7 2.2 with 6750 here... figured I'd offer a little help. I'm going to install Windows 7 tomorrow and check out a few more demanding games... but for now, I installed Half Life 2: Episode 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Portal, and Team Fortress 2 via Steam and ran every one at native resolution with maxed out settings without a hitch. No slow-down whatsoever and very fluid gameplay. I didn't check the numerical FPS, but it's well over a point where there was any obvious frame rate issues. This is one hell of a computer...

    It gets a 3DMark Vantage score of 5000 which is inline with the 260m and 280m GTX cards from a couple of years ago (which were essentially the same GPU as the desktop 9800 GTX).

    This is really awesome for a Mac laptop.

    In short, these new models with 6750M are faster in games than year old gaming notebooks that came with i7-720qm CPUs and 260m GTX or 360m GTX cards.

    And the MBP will absolutely obliterate those machines in encoding/transcoding tasks.

    So not a bad update at all.

    I consistently get at least 80, but usually in the 120 fps range with CS: Source and DOD: Source maxed out (no vertical sync or HDR). With those enabled its about a solid 60 fps. For Battlefield 2 i get 90-110 fps max settings 100% draw distance. Downloading COD: WAW now, well see how that plays.

    I can't make up my mind on which one I want... The 15" should out perform the 17" with the same specs and both at native resolution, but I just love the screen size of the 17".

    The 17" is the way to go.. its awesome. You can always lower the resolution if you need to.... in fast pace games you don't really notice if its running native res or not.
