    Would I be correct in assuming that the NVIDIA GeForce 320M in the April 2010 13" MBP is not considered higher than "ATI Radeon 2400 or higher / NVIDIA 8600M"? That's the minimum system spec for Portal 2, and I'm thinking that my 13" MBP won't run it. :( Can anyone give me a straight answer on this? Thanks.

    Valve will be releasing a Mac OS X version of Portal 2. The 320m should be more than adequate to run it though you may have to tweak the graphics settings a little bit.

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    I'm aware of the fact that there will be an OS X version. That's where I got the system requirements.


    So what I want to know is, does the 320M in the 2010 13" MBP count as "NVIDIA 8600M or higher", I don't know a whole lot about graphics cards, and that makes it hard to tell what is considered "higher" since they clearly don't just put them in numerical order.
