    For those who have owned or have had a great deal of experience playing or watching WoW on a 2010 model MBP (the lowest one on the current referb totem pole, with 256mb 330m graphics) how does the game run? Does it keep a consistent fps with decent settings? Does it hold up while raiding? For a point of comparison, we are deciding between the $1200 referb pro and the $1100 referb iMac (which has a 512 card in it), and the lady greatly prefers a second laptop over the iMac so long as the laptop is a good price and does WoW right. Thanks!

    I used to do 10/20 man raids on it. I don't remember the settings but it did just fine. Averaged 30+FPS I had it capped at 50 just to keep from getting to hot. This was also with the 2.53GHz i5, and 1680x1050 display, it should be better if you are using the 1400x900 display.
