    I have just bought The Orange Box (Team Fortress 2, Half Life 2, Portal etc) for my main gaming PC and I was wondering if I can run it on my MacBook, has anybody tried? I have Crossover games and Boot Camp (XP) installed.
    My MacBook has -

    Intel 2.0 GHz Processer
    Intergrated Intel GMA 945 Graphics Card (64MB)
    1 GB Ram (2 512MB Chips)

    Thanks for all the help, Conor

    I doubt it buddy, this Intel graphics chip isn't very good when it comes to gaming!

    Some people were able to run Source based games on Cross Over games with a 3100x. On TF2 there were so really noticeable ramming issue, so I really don't think you'll be able with this crap card.

    That's correct. Half Life 2 was playable, but weirdly Counter Strike: Source had no hope! So I doubt you'll have much luck with those titles.
