    Just curious. My current HP dv6105us runs it OKAY with the 6150 NVIDIA graphics card, but I'm wondering, since the macbook's is way better, how well will it run on the low end aluminum model?

    Fusion will run just fine on the Macbook. My wife runs it on a 2yr old white Macbook 2.16 w/ 2GB of RAM and it flies with XP (Vista is a little slower, but runs fine).

    If you're interested, you can virtualize your old HP on your Macbook via VMWare Converter Tool (Free).

    If you're going to be doing gaming, I suggest Boot Camp to get the full performance of the machine.

    Thanks. I'm not a heavy gamer though. I just play a few online games here and there. Just to be clear, this is on OS X, right? Cuz I really don't want to run windows unless I HAVE to

    Without scouring the internet, I would imagine it would run very well considering that the 9400M is vastly superior to the 6150.

    Oh you're fine hardware-wise....they were demoing Need for Speed: Carbon and Call of Duty 4 on Apple's site with the Macbook. Both were Mac versions :)

    The only drawback is the game selection is no-where near that of Windows games, so you may want to bootcamp if you want to play Windows-only games. I finally bootcamp'd my MBP w/ an old copy of XP and games fly.

    Thanks :). I get my macbook in 2 weeks, so I'm really glad you could answer a few of my questions.

    I can testify that VMWare Fusion works fine on my 1st gen MacBook. So, things can only go better for you with a new one. I have XP, and it runs good. I've had Ubuntu on it, and that runs ok as well.

    If you want to try a free VM alongside a Fusion demo (before you buy), try VirtualBox. I probably would have just used that if it had been out when I first needed a VM.
