Is the new 13"MBP good enough for mid-range gaming?

    As subject states.

    I'd like to switch from a hp dv6570el SantaRosa late 2007 (8400M with 128MB Ram).

    What I basically do with my laptop is:

    - emailing / surfing / etc
    - some development with Eclipse / start developing something for iPhone
    - basic audio recording
    - playing games (not at maximum rate.. I'm stuck with World of Warcraft ^_^).

    I don't think that the 15" MBP worths its price.

    Do you think that the 13" will be able to do this? I'm in doubt of the gaming, I don't want extreme performances, just something playable, and of course it will be better of what I'm using now.

    Thank you for answering :)

    Hard to say, seeing that it's only been out for about an hour.......

    Considering the old 13" would have sufficed for your needs above, the new one should too.

    I know, but I never heard of this 320M GT, maybe I'm missing some benchmark :) anyway, also humble opinions are good.

    I play WoW just fine on my 13" non-Pro unibody MacBook.
