I'm thinking about purchasing the Macbook in about 2 months and I know it's not a gaming laptop and all with the Intel GMA950 but I was just wondering, If it can handle Generals. This is the only game I'm really planning on playing on it.

I'm hoping that the Fast DUO COre and DDR 2 Ram can compensate for the videocard and still play the game smoothly.

Thanks In advance...

The best thing to do would be to find someone with a MacBook or a Mac Mini (which has the same video card) and ask them to download the free demo (there is also an update for the demo) from www.aspyr.com. Please note that C&C is not a Universal Binary just yet. So you'd have to run in under Rosetta. So that's a big double wammy. If someone does try out the free demo let us know how it runs.

Or you could just run the XP version under boot camp...

Rottlxxx? Sounds kinky.

I'm also interested in this issue.

At my new macbook (1,83 ghz, 1gb ) Generals runs horrible, 800x600 low. I don't know why, my xp 2200+ with an gf4mx440se runs it much better. Mayby beceause rosetta? I haven't tried it at XP jet

It will work on the Macbook Pro. I have it on my Powerbook G4, 1.6ghz, and it works..but it is slow. Since the Macbook is 5x faster, I doubt you'd experience any problems.

Unlike the above post, I have heard that Generals runs like crap on even a MBP, so I doubt it would be playable on a Macbook. You can always get the PC version, which should run okay, but nothing spectacular.
