Hey all,

I recently purchased a MacBook pro 13 inch unibody and am now in love with all things Apple. I do, however, miss gaming and am ready to jump back in. I never know where I'll be on any given day so a mobile solution is the only way to go for me. My question is, will the M11x outperform my mid 2010 MacBook Pro 13 inch (with bootcamped win7) enough to notice the difference and thereby justify the cost? Thanks in advance...

Some specs:

Intel Core i7 640UM (4M Cache, 1.2 GHZ with 2.266 GHz Max Turbo Frequency) - M11x
vs.
2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 3MB on-chip shared L2 cache - MacBook Pro 13
_____

1GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 335M - M11x
vs.
NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor with 256MB of DDR3 SDRAM - MacBook Pro 13

Not worth the money to buy another machine. My daughter has the same MacBook Pro and games quite nicely with it. Press on and have fun...

Now, for the naysayers, keep the Apple bashing to a minimum. Be gentle. [:cool:

Thanks...I actually went ahead and installed win 7 with bootcamp... :) For a non-gaming laptop I'm happy! Until the next too expensive gaming rig...
