    Sorry but a MB is only good for the following tasks:
    • Checking email
    • Browsing MacRumors
    • Writing in TextEdit

    What kind of games do you intend on running? OSX or Windows? What would you consider "well"?

    It really depends what you want to do and how you run them.

    If you intend games to be a big thing, don't get a MacBook.

    If you just want to play the odd game and don't mind if you have to have visual settings lowered, then the MB is fine.

    I think that post was meant to be sarcastic. If it were only good for those three things, it wouldn't be a huge seller as it is.

    Nonsense. Macrumors.com is in itself a selling point.

    I upgraded to the MBP so I could be able to browse Page 2 rumors! :D

    Where is your data coming from? People video edit, do logic, and tons of things on their macbook's.

    You'll want to turn the display backlight down to a minimum because the rumors are pretty gorgeous to contemplate on that 1440 * 900 resolution!

    It can run some older (2+ years old) titles at lowest graphics, but its still choppy. For games game MacBook Pro.

    Still, the MacBook is a very capable computer.

    Unreal Tournament 2004, which is still tons of fun for me, runs great at high quality settings on my 2.2GHz MacBook (X3100) at full 1280x800 resolution. Was playing a bit earlier tonight. Virtually no choppiness even with 12 bots running around.
