I had a Dell XPS M1530, which ended up breaking, once again proving Dell's outstanding lack of quality control. Instead of getting another one, I'm thinking about buying a MBP, since I need a laptop for school and I know how our MB never showed any problems for the past year that we've had it. So I'm buying a laptop for three things: Schoolwork (which is just simple word processing, checking my e-mail, internet assignments, and a few graphic design here and there), Gaming (not seriously, but enough to where i do care about performance and newer releases), and Reliability. "Reliability" being a key word, I'm seriously looking at purchasing a Macbook Pro. Here's my point. I have always believed that if it could handle gaming, it could handle anything. With Crysis being the most demanding game out there today, how would this MBP perform? - 2.5GHz Intel C2D - 2GB RAM - 512MB GeForce 8600m GT Exactly what kind of processor do MBPs use? Is it a T9300? Also, what kind of performance boost would I expect if I were to opt for 4GB RAM instead? And is it 512MB GDDR2 or GDDR3? If I opted to go for the 256MB card, what kind of performance decrease should I expect? Vista or XP, and how big of a difference because I am leaning more towards Vista? I have searched the web for an answer but I've found mixed responses, not to mention they don't have the specs that I'm getting. Also, please avoid responding with "Well, it's going to be playable" or "On Med-High settings" or "On Low settings." I prefer an answer from someone that has played Crysis on their MBP, or if they haven't then just answers for my other questions.
