    With boot camp on an intel mac, yes. Probably wouldn't want to try it with Parallels.

    I've not tried many yet, but on my maxed out macbook (2gb ram, 100gb hd 7200RPM)

    I have Lego Star Wars 2 running amazingly in the windows partition, and its a great showcase for the macbook's widescreen!

    I also tried an N64 emulator which ran at full speed. The graphics card in the macbook seems to be able to hold its own!

    Thanks for the replies! I’m a newbie with Macs and games, I use Macs for recording. Today I got hold of star wars battle from two, but I dont think my pc has 256 ram, i'll know when i get in from work, but my Intel based Mac does! What’s boot camp? Could you possibly give me some links to download whatever it is I need!?

    Many thanks!

    I have Quake 2 PC-version installed in my Macbook. It requires a 3.1Mb patch that can be downloaded for free.

    Works fine.
