    Hi guys
    I am new to the forum, I have just bought a new mac mini, 2.3 4gig ram and i think the intel 3000 graphics card, I understand the machine to be limited with regard to games but have just tried to install the witcher which states it will run with the 3000 graphics, after loading it tries to boot into game but the screen hangs on a completly black screen, has anyone successfully installed this game and run it on a similar spec mac mini?
