    Hi guys new on this forum.
    I'm just so frustrated about how my mid 2010 15" macbook pro runs fallout new vegas...

    Is it really possible that a macbook pro with these specs:
    Windows 7 64 bit (Bootcamp)
    i5 CPU m 520 @ 2.40Ghz 2.40Ghz
    4 Gb ram
    Geforce GT 330M

    runs the game SO bad! We're talking on the lowest settings possible and it still lags....
    The game recommended me "medium settings" but that seems like no option, when i see how it performs on lowest :-( Hope somebody can help me out..

    If you are using the standard graphics drivers that Bootcamp installed... then its not surprising. You want to update your graphics drivers to something more current.

    you should be able to get newer drivers directly from nvidia for the 330m... just download and install. I also hear http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/ has pretty good more tweaked drivers from nvidia.

    I have same specs (except 8GB RAM) and Fallout NV runs very well.
    I'm running 1680x1050 on external screen at high settings at 60FPS-80FPS.
    I finished the entire game with no issues or slowdowns.
    I've disabled aa tho and some water effects
