So... I'm thinking of getting a 15" 2.4GHz Macbook Pro. But the only reason I really "need" the medium model is because I'd like it to run some of my more demanding games such as Crysis and FSX. I'm not looking for a laptop that'll run it on all the highest settings, I'd just like to be able to take my games everywhere I go. Does anyone have any experience running one of those/both games on their Macbook? I'm pretty sure FSX should be able to run on the 128mb 8600gt, but Crysis requires at least 256mb, and I suppose it's more future-safe in the long run anyway? The computer I got now can almost handle Crysis on medium settings (18fps @ 1280 x 1024) and about the same on FSX. It's an Intel P4 3.2GHz @ 3.51GHz, nVidia GeForce 7900GT 256mb, 2GB DDR2 RAM and windows XP home Ed. Will the Macbook be able to squeeze some more frames out of Crysis and FSX, or is it about the same? I looked at the benchmark scores http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=130879 and the 256mb version scores at least twice as much as this one, so I was thinking maybe to sell this one and throw all my work on to the Macbook. Yes, I know that macbooks are not gaming computers, but if it performs better than this old Fujitsu Siemens which has cost me a great deal of troubles (from both Microsoft's side and Fujitsu's side) I see no reason why not to use the Macbook for everything. I'm planning to get a great gaming rig sometime next year that'll satisfy all my gaming needs. Then I won't really need the Macbook's gaming powers, and maybe it'll have been a bit of a waste getting the big one instead of waiting and spent the money on the PC. I know I'll still love the mobility of the Macbook tho, and I'll still be able to bring my games with me. Wow... My threads always end up being even longer than my longest essays... And even more confusing - I apologize for that, I hope you got some of it. Also... I know I've made it seem like I'm a total gaming freak... which I'm not. I'm a game lover, yes, but I am able to get out there and do something else, and I got plenty of other tasks for the Macbook, but the smaller ones will be able to handle them just fine. So... Do you think I should spend the last few $ and the get 256mb rather than the 128mb and get some gaming satisfaction?
