    Hello all

    I currently have the early 2008 revision MPB, but I'm thinking of upgrading and getting a 13".

    I'm just wondering if the integrated 9400 will be better than the 8600M (I play some World of Warcraft, as well as using ArchiCAD). I'm not really worried about processor speed, or RAM (I can upgrade that if I really need to).

    Thoughts?

    You play WoW and use CAD software on a 13" screen?

    Unless you've got a specific need for a 13"-rather than a 15"-screen, you'd be downgrading, not upgrading.

    I often ponder why people would be gaming on a 13" MacBook Pro. It doesn't seem worth it any bit.

    Thanks for the advice all. I tried playing on a friends 13" UB Macbook, and while I like the portability, it's really uncomfortable on such a small screen.

    Guess I'll wait for the next revision of the MBP.

    Not sure how WoW handles external monitors, but that's an option also.
