    I've searched and couldn't find anything on this, anyone got this setup and could let me know what the average fps is and can it play on ultra settings and be bearable (25-40 fps)?

    Blizzard suggests different settings for each Mac in their mac support forum.. u gotta search for the link.

    don't forget to cap your fps

    I play on a MBP 13" C2D 2.53ghz, 9400M with ultra details, shadows off, AA 2X and it runs smoothly at about 40-50 fps, sometimes even more depending on where I am

    World of Warcraft is one of the least graphically demanding games on the market right now. Despite several small graphics updates, the core of the game was built on technology from around 2002.

    Bottom line, almost any computer can run WoW well. A computer with 4gb of RAM, an i5 processor, and a 512mb graphics card will be able to max it out with no problem.

    On a MBP 13 2010, I maintain 30 fps in Dalaran. WoW is very playable on the 2010 MBP. I was unhappy during raids on the 2009s though, I don't recall the frame rate but it was almost unplayable in ICC.

    I doubt that you will get it play well with Max settings but I can't say that for sure.
