    I just got MYST V for christmas, but I have a IBOOK G4, 933 MHz PowerPC G4
    But the game calls for:
    Processor: 1 GHz G4 (1.6 GHz G4 or higher recommended)

    Will the game run on my system or do I have to take it back?

    If the shop allows you to take back an opened package, it can't hurt to try it :) It will run a bit slow, but myst isn't exactly a fast paced game, so you should be alright.

    I had Quake3 running on a 300Mhz iBook with 4Mb of VRAM back in the day, it said it required 6Mb on the box :eek: :D

    I have a Single 1.8Ghz PM with an X800XT and a 2405fpw(new) and I ran the demo at max settings(everything on max) and the lowest I got was probably 15 fps.

    I don't recall which site, but I've read that MystV really does not play nicely with Apple laptops-- the graphics cards aren't supported or something like that.

    I just ran the demo. it seemed to run fine. It was defaulted to half graphics, but I switched to full and it still ran fine.
    Are Demo versions quite the same as full, I mean as in using the sys. res.?
