I haven't played in years and might end up buying one of the new 15" MacBook Pros later this year, assuming Apple releases them then and they have some significant upgrades. However, for now I'm still using a MacBook Air which is pretty anemic for any kind of gaming.

Based off the following two links, in particular the latter, it seems like if you wanted to use a Mac portable to play WoW, you would need a recent MacBook Pro and not just a 13", but a 15" for the better video card for the game to be playable.

Now I could see getting away with playing with a MacBook or MacBook Air or MacBook Pro 13" if you were going to mostly solo, be social, or maybe even do light 5-mans with the graphics turned way down, but I don't see how you could raid or play without minimal graphics settings.

I would be interested to hear from anyone happy with their Mac portable that isn't a 15" Pro. Does your fan scream non-stop, what kind of settings did you settle for, do you raid, etc.?

For anyone using a recent 15" Pro, are you happy with the gameplay or wish you had a PC instead?
