Hey all. I bought a new MBP 13" yesterday, my 5th Apple computer so I'm not new to them. I had the original 13" when they were first released and I absolutely loved it, the size seemed perfect and it had enough power for what I needed it for. Backstory; I work in graphic design and run some mildly demanding tasks like 3D, and some VFX/Motion Graphics but nothing too hungry, and my old 13" used to handle it fairly well. I originally used my desktop for my main workhorse, and my old 13" MBP as an 'on-the-go' machine for working away from the house/office, but earlier this year I had what can only described as a moment of stupidity and decided to consolidate my workflow into one machine. I sold both my desktop and 13" MBP and bought a 15" MBP and upgraded the RAM/HDD. I immediately regretted it, it wasn't quite powerful enough, but mainly due to the size. After being so used to lugging around the 13, it was surprising how much more space/weight the 15" added and I longed for the 13 back! So I bought another desktop, sold the 15, and yesterday picked up a 13" again. I just bought the base spec, and added a 7200RPM drive and 8GB Crucial RAM when I got it home. For the most part it's fine, but I've noticed performance in 3D isn't fantastic. For example, my fiancee and I play the odd bit of RIFT (an MMORPG for you non-nerds reading), now I'm not expecting to be able to run it on much more than low settings, but here's the thing... she has the original 13" MBP, with 4GB RAM, a C2D chip, and a 5400 drive and averages 28-32 fps on 'low' settings, I've got the i5, 8GB RAM and a 7200 drive and average 12-18 fps on 'minimal' settings. Something doesn't seem right there, I know the HDD speed is possibly irrelevant, but the processor should be an improvement right? And I'm sure I read that the Integrated GPU (HD3000) will share some RAM if I'm running 8GB so surely I've got more processing power there too... but I'm seeing more than 10 fps less. Otherwise it's a fantastic little machine, admittedly not designed for gaming but it would be nice to see a little improvement.
