    I'm getting a MB 1/2GB RAM one way or another (MBP has good graphics/etc but it's just too $$$ for me) this holiday or by MWSF '07 and I was wondering would there be any serious problems running MapleStory (2D light load on graphics) and Microsoft's flight simulator? Everyone says MB isn't a gamer but I think it can take the load of these 2. :confused:

    i just got a maxed out black macbook and halo runs alright on it with the settings on mid. same with call of duty 2. if the game you are talking about is any less, then you should be fine. that being said, i am probably going to sell this MB (seeing as i got it for $1135), and get a MBP.

    The new MS Flight Simulator looks pretty heavy on 3D graphics- the suggestion to try the demo before you buy is a good one. In my experience, the Macbook isn't great for gaming, but it suffices for most.
