I played sc2 for over a year on a Macbook Pro (Intel i5, NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M).
I had to keep all graphics settings on low and have a fan blowing nearby just to keep it at a reasonable temperature, and keep the game somewhat playable during large battles.
Patch 1.5 took that reasonably-playable game on a mac and destroyed it. The FPS drops during battles in team games made the game unenjoyable.
So what did I do to solve this? I built a PC and put Windows on it for about $550.
Seriously, on a Macbook, my average APM would be in the 90s. Now, with a decent graphics card, my APM is often 110 to 115. I play at much higher graphics settings, and the FPS is always high. It's fantastic, and I won't recommend sc2 on a mac anymore.
