    Okay, I really want to preorder Portal 2. I am just worried about buying it and then it wont run well on my mid2009 mbp.

    Its the 2.26ghz 13" of the 2009 line (http://support.apple.com/kb/SP541) I run portal, team fortress 2, CS:S, and garry's mod on medium-high settings and it runs well.

    Any suggestions would be great (or if you somehow know for reals) on how it will do before I go ahead and buy. Kinda wish there was like a demo or something.

    Nobody knows how it will run, as only Valve has access to it at the moment.

    It will almost certainly be running on an updated version of the Source engine, so any computer that can run Portal, or HL2E2 reasonably well should be able to run Portal 2 reasonably well.

    Furthermore, if it doesn't run well enough in OS X, you can always try running it in Windows, where it will run considerably better.

    :D I knew this. I was just hoping someone was good at guessing at this stuff.
