    Hey guys I don't really understand all this benchmark comparison stuff and how it relates to playing graphics intensive games. so my question is what is the most graphics demanding game that the new macbook (2.0ghz) can run. crysis (highly doubt), cod4, counter strike, pacman?

    lol pacman. It scores 2277 in 3dmark06 in 1024*768. Playing Crysis would only be possible at the lowest settings.

    It performs very similar to Ati HD3470 and Nvidia 9300M GS with DDR3 RAM. (a little bit over 2000 in 3D Mark06 at 1280*720)

    I'm no gamer myself but I thought 18fps frames per second is not really playable?

    Crysis is surprisingly very playable at around 20fps

    For 13" I think these two LGs win, the LG P300 has an 8600M GS and the LG P310 has a 9600M GT (exact same spec as the higher spec MBP). Currently I'm torn between the P310 and getting the new MBP.

    It will run Crysis on medium to high on 1920x1200 at around 40 fps. It's a very powerful card.

    Most of the eye-candy stuff can be turned on I bet, but the AA stuff will probably be limited to FSAA 4x max and sub 20 fps.

    While cards like 8800m GTS can do FSAA 8x and get respectable fps.
