    Just want to ask, will the Call of Duty 4 or Starcraft 2 maybe possibly run on my Mac Mini Intel Core 2 Duo1.83ghz with 4G RAM? AFAIK, COD4 has a system requirement at least 2.0ghz and 1GB of RAM.:confused:

    Thanks

    I doubt it, especially SC 2, as you have an Intel GMA 950 GPU which is not dedicated and quite the under-performer.

    You could play COD on the MBP and even on MB CE, SC 2 might also run on the MBP.

    Intel GMA 950 suffers at gaming, see some benchmarks here

    Haha , Intel GMA 950, I had a laptop with such a graphic card and it barely could run Age of Empires 3.

    i played COD4: MW (the first one, not MW2) a couple years ago on my 2.33ghz mbp with the ATI Radeon X1600. it was playable with a low/med settings. my guess is your mini will NOT be able to play it at a decent framerate. the intel gma is just too weak.

    @blindsoul & indg: thank you for the comments, maybe i'll just stick playing on my MBP even if its just set on a medium setting;) since its really not possible on the mini.
