    Hello people,

    Ok so i have a 13" Macbook pro, Snow leopard, 2.53 Ghz, 4 GB memory, NIVIDIA GeForce 9400M, pre-installed boot camp assistance. What do i need to do in order to run Fall Out 3 on my laptop? Are my specs adequate? Please help me! thank you.

    Under Bootcamp it will run flawlessly. I ran it on my older Macbook (still a 9400M) just fine and dandy.

    F3 ran fine on my MBP (see signature). Don't ask me if I liked the game. ;)

    Will i have issues running Fall out 3 on my macbook pro even though it has 9400M graphics card? is bootcamp assist enough? do i need to purchase windows XP to play game? Should i buy PC version of game?

    ran fine under bootcamp on my 13" MBP with the 2.26 ghz and 2gb RAM, so you should be fine with the 2.53ghz and 4gb RAM. only problem was, which you get with any other game, is the heat from the top right corner of the computer.

    It seems to me as if you don't quite understand what Boot Camp is and what it does.

    Have a read of


    That should answer most of your questions.

    Also, read Dagless's post and that will answer your question regarding whether it'll run on the 9400M.
