Macs = No Video Card?
Well a couple days ago i was at apple and asked about the video card that is in my macbook. He said its like intergraded in the computer, and said they don't use video cards. In my opinion I would think that means: Worse Gamming, and Other Related things. Well maybe he was wrong?

Most laptops don't use 'video cards', but integrated video. Even, to my knowledge, the SLI laptops have integrated chips. Sure the gaming would be 'worse' than a video card, but it isn't 'bad'. You might have a rougher time with the upgraded resolution feature you can add, but otherwise you might want to check Youtube for Macbook Pro gaming videos. If they can get Crysis running, I think you should be fine.

MacBook Pro's have dedicated video cards. MacBooks have the integrated video chips.. every computer either has a video card or integrated graphics or else there would be no computer... Gaming on the new line of Macbooks is not as bad as it used to be, granted it could be better, its not horrible though.

every notebook has some form of graphics, however they are nver as good as what you get in a desktop, more room, more power, more heat, and notebooks cant exactly fit dual slot gfx chips...
