    It could easily play angry birds...


    Post the specs of the laptop and type of games your looking to play. Then I could offer you some critical help.

    Well, everything is pretty good, but that HD integrated graphics are really going to choke your performance in any game. Not too sure spec wise how well certain games will run though. Hopefully another kind soul will chime in with some expertise.

    A Macboom Pro?...Did I miss something?:eek: Is there a new refresh...:D

    A lot of games will run on your machine...Bioshock is one that runs well on my 17" It's not new, but it's a good port. The second game has also recently been ported over too...

    I have a 13" MBP and I play Batman: Arkham Asylum, CoD 4: Modern Warfare, RAGE, Quake 4, Company of Heroes and a bunch of other FPS games. I got them all from the Mac App Store but if you use Bootcamp I don't think it'll make a difference performance wise seeing as how the CPU is the same. Hope that helps.
