    I just wanted to find out how's the performance of starcraft 2 on the mbp 13" 2010 model, BUT i want to find out how much fps during huge huge battles with medium/low settings on battle.net in like 2v2 or 3v3s. i tried looking through youtube and google searched plenty of times, but on youtube, those sc2 vids are either for other macs, or are just non intensive. google search didnt provide me abt performance during huge battles, only provided during normal times.

    anyone tried? i would really want to know first as i will be buying a used model of this for a gud price very very soon, so i want to know ASAP. THANKS!!!

    Not great. If you're talking about 400+ units all at once you are going to drop down to sub-10 fps.

    hmm... what about normal battles? like in 1v1? like the battle that decides who wins or loses where both of them put all their units in that battle?

    Depends on your internet connection; but it's usually not too bad.

    I played the SC2 demo on my friend's Macbook pro 2010 13". I own the game on a 2009 13" with a 2.26 C2D, I play 1280x800 at ultra settings minus shaders, 50ish fps idling, 30ish when buildings and units are goin around and fighting.

    The 2010 MBP is capable for medium settings, running at a bearable framerate, which will inevitably drop when the GPU is taxed more and more.
