Hello I am a desktop guy, I had imac g4 '17 since 2002. My new macbook I got few days ago. I know this is not a gaming machine, I got 360 AND Wii for that. I didn't get it to play games really(Although I expect it to play the older ones). But it kind of is worst than my worst of expectations. I just want to know if I am on the right track here. I had vm fusion, I ran windows xp and tried to run left4dead from within that. OK It crashed, it didn't even ran past the menu screen as far as I remember. I did a boot camp installation. I installed it, so it ran ok. Here is what. So my computer is brand spanking new. I did put it on high resolution and everything else, and connected it to a '22 samsung 2220 wm. Not only is response time is slow and delayed, but i get a lot of skipped frames, and the game freezes for sometime with sound just replaying(TON-TON-TON-TON) then it continues to play in its sad performance. After a bit, the whole thing crashes and it says something like "dv graphics card unable to perform well, need restart system" Or something like that. My monitor supports up to 1600x 1050 I think. so I switch on to lowest resolution 1024x(i forgot) .Now it doesnt crash, it plays but freezes a bit, skips frames, jitters, and you know the rest. 800x600: Now it plays well, but this resolution for new computer? This is not even HD. 640x480: Now it plays perfect, fast and all with nothing lost. But can you remind me, isn't this resolution of '98 games? I have found more decent results if I use the 1024 resolution on my macbook monitor, not an external one. Does the computer have a problem displaying on an eternal monitor? If so, why are they bought then ?(specially of those who thought to use it for gaming) I just need clearing on, am I getting the right thing or is there something wrong with my computer? Are games that run native on OS X probably performing better than this? enlighten me please I paid $1500 for this!
