    I've got the new unibody macbook and thought simcity4 would run smoothly on that. However the fact is that it turned out to be several display errors: the roads won't display, and some of the building blocks turn in red/green/blue colors instead of what it should be. Is anybody suffering this issue? Or the new nvidia graphic chipset isn't compatible with simcity4?

    I have a Black MacBook 2.4ghz, and I have experienced similar anomalies. Are you using the Intel Patch that Aspire issued? The patch did not fix all of my problems, but it works a little better. The game runs a little laggy however, and I have 4gb's of ram. Hope this helps.

    Yes, I've checked their website. Since Aspire claimed that the mac version is designed for power pc, I've decided to run this game under XP.
