    Ok, before any of you whine about this. I was wondering, if MY specific macbook will run CounterStrike:Source and approximately how well.

    I just bought a Macbook Pro - Specs are here:


    In a nutshell:
    # 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    # 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x2GB
    # 250GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm

    Essentially, I would use Crossover or BootCamp (But have had bad experience with it in removing it).

    Thanks all!

    Of course it will run. But not in highest performance. I would say the graphics are decent enough to play with no lag using bootcamp. Don't use crossover, bootcamp is a way to go for gaming on a Mac.

    It can run at full resolution, textures on high, but don't enable AA nor AS.

    Don't listen to people in this thread.
    Also, what are you doing asking if a computer with probably the best integrated graphics can run a 5 year old game?!
    CS:S runs on my Pentium 4 HT 3.4GHz with 1.5GB of RAM and an NVidia 6610XL, an OEM underclocked 6600.
    I can run it full res: 1600x1200 no lag. with all settings on fullest they can be, everything enabled.
    That's a 4ish year old PC.

    Because, it doesnt matter if you got a 9999999GHZ processor and 10239102310901923GB of Ram, you need the video too. My "Macbook" NOT pro, does not have that.

    Hence, why the PRO is coming.

    Err... I know that.
    I'm pointing out that I have a 6610XL. It gets something ridiculously low compared to the 9400M, when using benchmarking tools.
    However, CPU and RAM do matter as well.

    I run it in Crossover on a 22 inch external display without issue using both the 9400m in my MBP and the 9600GT. The 9600 is faster but not much. CS is an old old I first played it over a in dialup. Source is a little more demanding but not much.

    It runs very well on my base 13", so you should be good to go.

    Even MW2 runs fine on the 9400m

    well I know this won't help but my machine runs it at native 1440x900 with AA and AF enabled with HDR enabled. avg 70-90 frames. :)
