    Solitare :) Seriously though Chess would rock on that.....

    Unfortunetly the GPU in that iBook would be a dog with any current software releases.. download ASPYR's game agent from their website and it will tell you what will work, and what wont....

    1. World of Warcaft - you won't play it with all settings maxed out, but this is a great game on my 1.2GHz iBook.
    2. Civ III - For a change of pace, and it runs on anything. OK, not really that current, but very addictive/fun, and your computer's horsepower will never be an issue.

    unreal tournament 2004. search around for "optimizations". i have an ibook gr 1.33 12 inch with 1 gb or ram, so i share a simaler experience with you. one major thing you can do to increase performance is disable dynamic lights, it's a major performance killer.

    starcraft

    warcraft III and expansion

    neverwinter nights

    marble blast gold

    unreal tournament original. it runs very well on current macs, even on mac minis.

    1.5GB RAM! Wow! You should have no problems with most games. I'd suggest Rise of Nations, Railroad Tycoon, Spy Hunter, and my perennial fave, Starcraft!

    The sims 2 is simply fantastic


    Alot better that the first one as the sims dont wee themselves every 2 mins

    Alot more realistic than the old one
