    will it play sims 3 and sims medieval?

    Will it accept a 320GB SATA 7200RPM HDD? what is the MAX RAM?
    the battery is shot will a Duracell - Lithium-Ion Battery for 13" Apple MacBook DR5994 work on this model?

    I would say no. Mainly the RAM. I have the late 2009 white MacBook which originally came with 2GB and Sims 3 was very sluggish until I upgraded to 4GB. I don't think it would work at all with only 1. Plus, I don't think the integrated Intel graphics is supported either.

    If you can get it to work it's going to run horribly slow.

    My white macbook 2010 model plays The Sims 3 pretty well. No lag really. Just the fan comes on really loud.

    Mine lost the lag once I upgraded to 4GB. The fan does run all the time though!

    I don't know, my Mac runs Sims 3 laggy and it's new :(

    MacBook Pro 15" Early 2011
    Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 (11D50)
    2.2 GHz Intel Core i7
    8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
    AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1024 MB

    I don't know why it's laggy even on lowest settings it still only runs like 20-40 fps :(
