    20FPS is impressive for a $2500 computer? You have really low standards

    When it comes to a Macbook Pro?

    This is kind of off-topic, but what's the heat and noise level when playing games? When idle, surfing, viewing pictures, watching YouTube etc?
    Either talk from own experience or download iStat Pro and take a screenshot of it.

    Is it warmest with the Intel 3000HD or the 6750 enabled? Really concerned about those stuff, as I have ordered the high-end model myself :)

    It dips below 20 during the explosion sequence... not quite playable frame rates. Would be better to see how it does without AA.

    Sorry, but to me, 28FPS+ is good, and below about 23 is bad...
    I guess i'll hold off on upgrading until we can get that. Until then, my 330m works fine. :)
    Although it would be interesting to see how the lower priced base 15" plays this.

    True true. I'm sure without AA on, and a couple other little tweaks, you'll be playing this game with a 40-60 fps. From what I've seen, practically every game on the market is more than playable on this machine. I'm just waiting for a Crysis benchmark to seal the deal.
