    What kind of games does your wife like? How about "spot the object" games like I Spy Spooky Mansion? This type of game involves pictures with bunches of objects to visually identify. My wife loves these types of games and the MacBook will play them all, including other series like Mystery Case Files. Your MacBook will also play most gambling games. On the MacOS it will also play games like Riddle of the Sphinx, however I don't know if this has been checked out for running on an intel Mac. More recently Penumbra Overture, a decent mystery game will play on MacBooks with x3100 chipsets. And don't forget to check out the list of games at Apple.

    And if you feel like installing Windows (I recommend XP) you can play a variety of low overhead mystery games like Nancy Drew and Riddle of the Sphinx (which is still available new for PC).

    From your post looks like you are looking for games for her. Sims is good, my wife loves playing that game. Diner dash is also a lot of fun. I have wasted quite a bit of time on that game. There is an online version, but I still prefer the retail version.

    I usually find that the card games or more casual games are what my mom, wife, and sister get into. You can find a lot of card games and such on apples site for not too much. Might be cheaper elsewhere, but I haven't checked.

    Hope this helps. :)

    That should not be true. Everybody should have freedom of will to do anything on their computer.

    Sims, yep, a very popular female game. All of our friend's daughters have played it at one point or another.

    Indeed. If she's got time to play games, then she should be doing the pile of ironing, cleaning the house or preparing your evening meal. ;-)
