Hi all?

I just wanted to know all of your views on running Simcity 4 on your MacBook or MBP. Anyone any experinces on the iMac Duo 20"?

I've only got 3 year-old 12" ibook and thinking about purchasing a new mac. Which one would you recommend. I've also heard about the whinning noise in the MBP and some cooling paste problems with the MB. Any comments?

Looks like it will run fine on any intel based Mac.

It sure wouldn't run on my iBook G4 even though I supposedly met the requirements. It was extremely sluggish to the point of being unusable. :( I don't have problems running The Sims though, but I guess Sim City is a bit more taxing.

I would think it would run fine on any of the newer machines though, since the game was released so long ago and intended more for those system requirements, and the new machines go above and beyond that. :)

Thanks both of you. :) It surely seems that the answer is getting a new Macintel.
