    hello all, i got the 1.8 64ssd version of the air, and while its not used for ay form of gaming, i would like to put on some time wasters on it such as the sims 2, or any form of simulation/ strategy, city building game.

    anyone have any idea or tested if sims2 can run on my laptop without too much choppyness?
    thanks

    I thought the retail box said "not for integrated graphics cards", but I could be wrong.

    Sims 2 runs fine on my MB but that was in windows so it may, if you have it you could just try and see

    My Macbook can't run it (in real time), so I really wouldn't suggest it, but hey, uve got quadruple my RAM. Give it a go, or ask Apple.

    One of the games that work w/ Macbook in another forum said that Sims 2 ran fine under Bootcamp w/ XP @ low settings

    update, i bought both the sims 2 and sims life stories ( apprently designed for laptops ) under mac format.
    both games ran fine, not much difference in performance between the two, its a little laggy when moving about screens but certainly not a factor that makes it a annoying unplayable game.

    i havent tested it yet with some 20 odd sims in the house, but so far up to 5 ran fine on both games.

    for those interested, hopefully this helps, not sure how itll perform on the slightly lower mac air model, but for this machine its a consideration to kill time like i waned.
