You can get decent gfx cards on the Macbook pro, but you have to pay a pretty hefty price. My ASUS laptop has twice the nvidia dedicated GDDR3 video RAM with a lower price, and yet it's significantly older (picked it up in January of '09 and it was an aging model even then).

Don't forget to live before you die.

The apple community is actually wondering if steam is going to be nough of a push for apple to start playing with higher end cards. The jury is still out, macs are not exactly used for gaming and everyone knows it. However, I did thoroughly enjoy COD MW on my mac.

Macs are definitely lacking in the game department. You could run paralells or VMWare to run windows on your mac.. I do and it works great. With a normal macbook you may not have a powerful enough card to run many windows games.. at least not with all the bells and whistles.

I love the mac though
