Hi,
After far too many blue screen crashes and general windows nonsense, I have decided to take the plunge and buy a macbook.
My only concern is the running of Eve.
Essentially as far as I understand a Macbook AIR would be an Eve no-no, but all other Macbooks would be ok?
I really want to know if the 13" Macbook Pro is sufficient, or is there an 11" Macbook that will do the job?

Thanks in advance

I have the basic MBP 13inch, it runs EvE Online but about medium/low settings and generates quite a bit of heat doing so!.

I run EVE just fine on a 2gb/1.86ghz MacBook Air.

I got the last year edition MBP 13" and it can run everything just fine, even on high if you'd like. But be advised as above, it generates quite some heat =)

Heat issue has become a lot better with latest update to os? as I believe they let the fan run some more now, instead of before where it only turned on when u hit 80 C =).

atm I am just docked in eve with everything on low, got some other apps running like safari etc, and it's running at 68 C, but when you start fighting it will easily run towards 80, so don't have it on your lap during fleet fights :P

But yeah, runs it perfectly =)
