    I'm waiting for my new 15" MBP to deliver and wondering how well it will run Battlefield 3 via Windows 7! Any experience?

    Here are the the specs:
    MacBook Pro 15-inch Hi-Res Antiglare Widescreen Display
    2.4GHz quad-core
    Intel Core i7
    4GB 1333MHz
    750GB 7200-rpm1
    Intel HD Graphics 3000
    AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 1GB GDDR5

    At native resolution with all low settings you should get around 40 or more frames per second. This will obviously fluctuate depending on what's going on in the game. If you overclock, which sometimes is not advisable, then you can probably reach around 50 frames per second. You could always lower the resolution of the game to your liking to achieve a better framerate, but the game will begin to look a little fuzzy.

    Around low to medium.
    definitely not on high.

    I have the early 2011 17in w/ 2.2GHz/16GB/6750M 1GB and runs fine on medium.

    It actually runs on high but lags on certain point so I prefer medium on your machine as well.

    I have the AMD 6750M version with a 2.3 GHz Intel i7-2820QM processor. First of all, don't upgrade to the latest driver version. AMD doesn't support the 6750M series, and I'm pretty sure they don't support the 6770M. Use 11.10 (not 11.1, that's a different version) and also download ATI Tray Tools. Overclocking gave me 25% more frame rates. You'll be able to run with textures on medium, terrain on medium, resolution at 1280x768, and AAPP at low. Everything else either off or minimum. These settings will net you 60FPS.
