Question on hardwareFollow

I was an avid player through the Lich King release. Since then I've left the game. So a bit ago I decided to return. I play on a Mac and as it happens my OS and system are old enough that I can't play the current release. I need to use a Mac and Apple decided to discontinue their 17" Macbook Pros so I'm exploring the used market.

Have any of you experience playing the current release on a Macbook Pro with the 2.5Ghz Quad core I7 and the ADM HD 6770m 1 Gig graphics card? If so how well do things run? That is the highest performance 17" Macbook that apple made before they discontinued the 17" laptop.

Before you ask a 15" laptop does not meet my development needs. Since Apple discontinued the 17" series their prices have remained quite high on the used market, I don't want to spend $2500 for a used laptop only to discover that Wow won't run reasonably well on it.
Thank you for your help and guidance

That's a fairly specific request, and somewhat subjective. I haven't used that setup, it should run well enough for the time being but then next expansion is changing their file format and using more detailed models. You might want to post this in the hardware section.
