I've run many 720p trailers from apples website on a macbook, and they run just fine. Actually I remember 1080p ones running smoothly on a stock White Macbook.

Or maybe stock +1GB ram? :)

My macbook hasn't arrived yet, but that's what I ordered and I think a lot of people agree that you should really have atleast 1GB in your macbook to take advantage of the processor blah blah...

well that depends on what you're doing with them? just watching, or editing also?
Well, it can do both. Hell, my iBook can edit 720p video - just can't play it back all that well.

It also gets full frame rate on the 480p content despite being lower in all system requirements.
