    Gaming laptops make me lol. If you wanted to game why would you get a Macbook anyway? There is better alternatives with better specs for the same price.

    My God please don't tell me you are buying more RAM from Apple. They charge you an arm and leg for an extra stick when you could get the same RAM for 30 bucks.

    If you want gaming get this,

    Better processor build and better graphics. Cheaper as well.

    First of all, SHININGSTEEL, are you bent on flaming apple products? And your RAM argument has holes in it. The RAM from apple isn't that badly overpriced. DDR3 ram from crucial and OWC is roughly $140. Apple's price is $150.

    Thread starter, to answer your question, I have the same macbook. From experience, I can run COD4 and Spore on highest settings natively, and I can run Fallout 3 on a boot camped Windows XP SP3 quite well. In addition, I do not suggest playing Fallout 3 on a computer. It's so freaking buggy. Anyways, I hope I helped!

    SHINGINGSTEEL that was not very helpfull what you said, i know macs arent meant for gaming, i mostly need the computer for school but i would enjoy some occasional gaming every now and then, i wanted a macbook pro because i hear its better than the macbook for gaming, but the cost is just too high.;
    but thanks for that link on that computer, it does seem to be a good build

    SeeFreak; Thank you for your helpfull reply
