    Hello

    I am on my way to buy a macbook pro 13", but I need to know if it can handle counter-strike 1.6.

    Is there anyone out there that's running cs 1.6 on their macbook pro?
    What fps do you get? get hundred?
    running windows?
    and your spec on the macbook pro.


    Thanks

    You'll get 100 fps with Vsync off.
    1.6 is not on Mac-Steam jet.
    Bootcamp will solve that for you.

    yea you should be fine.
    I was getting 100fps on my old machine that was like a million time worse.

    Dunno if you play it in a competetive way you gonna either play 640x480 or 800x600 ;)

    Okey thanks, 800 x 600 ofc ;)

    The reason I am unsure, is because I have heard that the gpu 320m is not good at all.

    But I wish other people could reply aswell, input is always good :)

    CSS is on Mac. And why would 100 FPS matter? I'm sure you could run it at a constant 60 FPS which is all that really matters.

    100 is better than 60.
    And dont come and tell me that there's no difference. Because it is.

    The MacBook will run CS:S at nearly 120FPS at 640x480 with my FPS config. The only thing I want to find out is if the mini display port will allow for 120Hz in Windows. If it does, I am buying a MacBook Air as soon as I can.

    So yes, CS will run flawlessly on a MacBook.

    Uh, but the screen can only display 60 FPS, so how would 100 make any difference when that is forty frames a second that aren't being displayed?

    You're right, you are only "seeing" 60FPS. However, when you play game competitively or seriously, input lag and smoothness become a factor at lower than 100FPS. You can feel a distinct difference in your mouse when comparing 60FPS and 120FPS.

    I would also be connecting a 120Hz monitor to this if someone could test it with the display port input.
