I have a Late 08 MBP Unibody, parents opted to spend more on a laptop than let me build my own, and run Windows 7 in Bootcamp.
2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (6MB cache, 1.07GHz Bus)
4 GB 1067MHz DDR3 SDRAM
Display is 1440 x 900
and the standard integrated Nvidia 9400 graphics (256MB VRAM) and 9600M GT (512MB VRAM)

You should be able to run them, but you'd have to set the graphics quality to low or medium.

It should run them, but you'll wnt to get the 9600, run at medium quality, and get a laptop cooler, and the 9xxxM chips are notoriousky hot.

awesome. thank you for the heads up.
believe me though, I definitely know about the 9600 and heat. I worry about my machine sometimes, cause it can run excessively hot, especially when playing (any/all) games
