    im thinking of buying virtual pc7 , along with a couple of the latest games. I'm not sure if they will run well enough on my ibook g4 , 1.3 , 768mb , x4 32mb ati radeon 9200. Can anyone squash my fears???

    No way will HL2 and Doom 3 run in VPC. VPC has no 3D support. There is a Mac version of Doom 3 but it probably won't run too well on your system.

    Neither of those games will run anywhere near your Mac. In fact, just running VPC is going to be a slow affair!
    Your head is way in the clouds, sorry! :(
    That's no gaming machine you have there.

    get an xbox, or wait for xbox 2 - it will have both these games, and run them pretty well. Heart mended!

    This cannot be an earnest question. Even the Mac version of Doom 3 barely runs on this iBook. How could one really think emulation would be better?
