    i was just wondering what people thought would b the better option as i hav spent weeks trying to make up my mind bout my xmas present, nd my parents keep asking me what one i want, but i cnt decide.

    i want a laptop that can run games like rollercoaster tycoon 3, sims 2 and various shoot em ups like doom 3. buuuuuut, i rele rele rele like the design of the macbook. would the intergrated graphics of the macbook be able to handle RC3 and sims 2?

    i dnt think id need to carry it around much, mayb just to friends houses and for a few school trips but thats about it.

    your opinions much appreciated.

    that would require using more of a GPU, than a integrated graphics.

    unfortunately, the MBP would be a better choice.

    good news though, only marginally slower the non C2D MBP would be a good price for you on refurbished.

    just a thought
