    I am planning to buy a current generation Macbook White soon and I was wondering how well the following games run on it:

    The Sims 2
    The Sims 3
    Call of Duty 4
    Left 4 Dead
    Half Life 2

    Thanks,

    Tim :)

    Judging that the white MacBook has the same internals as the unibody MacBook, I think it would be pretty decent. While it won't have the great power of the graphics that come with a MacBook Pro, you'll be at least able to run games on medium or high settings.

    Thanks for that :) No disrespect to you, but I'm looking also for people who have direct experience of playing these games on it! :eek:

    yeah given the main difference b/t whitebook and the aluminum is just the ram speed I can vouch for the following on my 2.0 Aluminum MB:

    Left 4 Dead
    Call of Duty4
    The Orange Box (HL2 etc)

    all run very well, prob CoD4 the weakest of the bunch but can run at 30+ by turning off various settings like smoke, that reflective one and a few others. You'll be satisfied! This is from specs in sig on XP32bit.
