    Sorry if this has been covered, I did a search but could only find info on the older integrated graphics chips.

    I'll be getting a new 2.4 Alu MB soon but was also thinking about starting to play LotRO. I don't want to start it on my PC and then find it runs even worse, or not much better, on the MB. It won't effect my decision to buy a MB, just the game.

    Has anyone played it or the new expansion on the new MB? I saw the video where they got Warhammer Online running on high settings on the new MB so LotRO should run very well too right?
    I'd appreciate any comments. Thanks. :)

    I'm also curious. I would imagine that spec-wise the Alu MB would run games (that are compatible) amazingly but I've seen mixed comments. I'll mostly be running WoW on my new MB.

    Lotro is more graphically intense than Warhammer. You could definitely play it, but need to tone down the graphics settings.

    Thanks for the reply bud. When you say turn the settings down, what am I looking at? Medium or dare I chance med/high? :D

    What else would you use? Yes Boot Camp is the best at running games, as opposed to Parallels or Crossover or VMWare.

    A friend gave a buddy referral for LOTRO and I installed it on my old DELL (2.0 CD, 2gb RAM and an ATI x1400). I can get it to run smoothy with the overall settings at MED but it looks pretty pants to be honest.
    Does anyone know how the 9400M compares to the x1400? I'd imagine pretty favourably as the x1400 is cack, though saying that it runs WoW really well.

    Looks like no one is playing this on the alu MB as I can't find a single thing on t'internet about anyone doing just that. Plenty on the Mb Pro but not a sniff of the new MB. :(
