    Runs fantastic and although the fans ramp up to nearly full speed the temperate on mine (2.2 15") only hovers around 70 degrees Celsius.

    This is running the game in OSX 10.6.7 What a fantastic sequel to Portal

    Can someone give results on 2.0Ghz? I'd love to play Portal 2 if it can handle it.

    I think you will be OK just need to watch the graphics detail settings.

    I Love Computer gaming. I own a gaming rig infact.

    My first thing is that for the most part it is not your CPU you should be worried about. Modern day games tend to force most of the work off of the CPU and onto the GPU. So make your Your GPU isn't floating somewhere around 100 degrees lol. But you should be able to run portal 2 no problem it was made to be ran on a Console.

    I'm able to use most graphics settings on medium-high at native res. I have aa and v-sync off though.

    Very nice. Do you know the FPS? 24+ is tolerable.

    Willing to bet with v-sync off it's 60-80+ at those settings.

    I get 120+ on all highest except no AA no v-sync @1680x1050, played in OSX. I turned on triple buffer v-sync to lock at 60FPS and called it good. Specs in sig. The 2.0 + 6490 should be fine at my estimated FPS above since Portal 2 is not that demanding.

    It typically runs at 60+ fps. I like it to run very fluidly so I keep settings a bit lower but you could easily boost the quality while maintaining a good framerate.
