    MY Macbook Pro is a year and a half old now ,we love it except it cant run
    Battlefield 3.You have to have a specific Nvidia driver and it wont work with the
    Ge Force M 9600 gt.Nearly £2000 worth of laptop just over a year old and already going backwards fast such a shame

    Another way to look at it is that the developers of Battlefield 3 have failed to make their game compatible with a specific graphics card...

    Which would be the correct way of looking at it. How could Apple have known that in one year and a half, BF3 will come out that won't support this GPU they are using in their current line-up? There is no way of telling!

    Don't be upset man, BF3 doesn't even run that well on late 2011 MBPs..

    (for FPS games, 60fps is a minimum)

    Indeed, and MBPs are no gaming machines. Buy an Alienware or XPS for that...

    or just buy a gaming console.

    If you really want to play games on computer, buy a high end PC

    Erm, don't you just have to update the driver in Windows to the latest one provided by NVIDIA? Hardly difficult to do...

    Macbook pro

    we can use battlefield 3 on our Macbook pro.If we run the screen res at 800 x600 and have all the detail at the lowest settings the game runs without juddering stuttering.

    I see that we have two graphics a 9400 m and a 9600 m gt Is it possible to upgrade either of these to a faster newer graphics card

    Or an XBox. BF3 runs nicely, and it's cheaper than getting caught up in the PC/Mac gamer upgrade cycle...
