    Yes, you'll have no problem at all. Brad Oliver has written some enlightening points over at CivFanatics concerning performance and the (high) system requirements. Looks like people w/ a high end G4 and a good graphics card with lots of RAM and VRAM (my PowerBook) should be able to handle it, albeit with a lot of effects turned off, and at the end of the game things might be a tad slow.

    You wont have any issues, you have a real GPU not some integrated crap graphics.:cool:

    Ehm, that is not totally true...
    I was able the play Civ 4 on bootcamp on my macbook 2Ghz and 512MB of Ram. It did run at native resolution at a respectable speed!

    So you better reconsider your holy war against integrated graphics :p

    And to the OP: obviously, if Civ 4 runs well on my stock macbook, you should not have problems with the Pro version.

    yeah you'll be fine with a MBP-it's apple's fastest laptop so it should be able to run a game like civ4 with no problems

    I know you're making a joke but that holy war might be a reality soon, if it isn't already.
