    so this is for the MBP 13" 2010 model, with the nvidia grapohics.

    1. does C2D have intel HD graphics + Nvidia or is that only the core i's. i thought i read somewhere that there are both?

    2. how does assassin's creed work on this? and any good games (its a 13.3 inch model so doesnt have to be too heavy.

    how is WoW.. i have never played it, what is it?

    3. what other games are there that fits hte MBP 13.3" (2010) computer skills.. this is the base model so 2.4 Ghz. and all :)

    If games are what you're after, a Mac really isn't the best option (and certainly not the 13").

    Seconded on that if you're after gaming. Plus you'll have to buy a license for Windows to boot camp... The graphics on the 13" are adequate but nothing stellar.

    As for the graphics, I'm not sure that the macbook pro has integrated Intel graphics - just the integrated 320m. Most games you will be able to run but perhaps not with the amount of detail and resolution you would like...

    All valve games except the original half life series and team fortress 2 run pretty well on the 13 inch MBP.

    im not after too much gaming. just like "bored time" i guess. i was just wondering if assassin's creed 2 would work decently for the MBP 13" 2010,

    I'm sure it will run on a low setting. But anything but that is isn't going to run very well. If you want something for games maybe get a 13" MBP and a cheaper desktop PC for your games. Or get a 15" MBP with the better graphics card. Either way though the Apple MBPs aren't designed for games.
