    This may be a dumb question so forgive me if it is:
    Does anyone know if Civ 5 will run on the new low end Mac Book Pro assuming that it won't have a GPU other than the one integrated on Sandy Bridge?

    according to the latest rumors, it'll be:
    Core i5-2520M (3M cache, 2 Cores, 4 Threads, 2.50 GHz 32nm)

    Worst case.. it should have the Intel sandy bridge 3000 graphics... if thats the case, it should run, since those come close to the nvidia 320m in performance... though not quite as good.

    Best case they'll put in a GPU, and anything they'll put in will be good enough to at least run it.

    Now thats not saying you'll run it on anything but the lowest settings, but it'll run.

    no one will know for sure until we get full specs of the machines.
