So you're saying it's not only the MacBook Pro that's getting way too hot? I didn't know this was an issue with the MacBook as well since it's cover isn't made of aluminum. But well. Hmm.
How is it?

lol, the x1600 mobility sure beats the hell out of my PC's old GeForce 4 Ti

Still waiting for my MBP to arrive, but from all ive seen the x1600 will be more then enough to run new games at at least moderate/high graphics settings. I can't wait

I run WoW on my MBP with the setting all the way up (with the exception of one option that makes the screen look weird under water). I have no problems. No lagging at all in IF. Perfect gaming machine for me.

Guess what, skatman, you're wrong. Stop defending your incorrect statement before you embarass yourself. The X1600 is very suitable for 3D gaming, seeing as it has over 128MB of graphics memory, supports the latest shader models on the OpenGL and DirectX sides, and runs all current Windows games astonishingly well.
