    Am about to buy a Macbook Pro sooner than intended (my old Powerbook was stolen yesterday :( though is covered by insurance at least), would like to run Neverwinter Nights 2 on it, will this run well even on the lower end MBP (i.e. 2.4Ghz CPU and only 256Mb of VRAM)? Its an extra £250 (through Apple's education store) for the 2.5Ghz CPU/512Mb VRAM model, which seems alot extra for only a little more performance (spending an extra £50 for the 7200rpm disc on the slower model would seem a better move), but the slower model on just meets the recommended specification:

    Operating System: 10.4.11 (Tiger), 10.5.1 (Leopard)
    CPU Processor: Intel Chipset
    CPU Speed: 2.0 GHz
    Memory: 1 GB
    Hard Disk Space: 6.5 GB Hard Drive Space
    Video Card (ATI): Radeon X1600
    Video Card (NVidia): Geforce 7600
    Video Memory (VRam): 128 MB
    Media Required: DVD Drive

    CPU Speed: 2.33 GHz
    Operating System: 10.4.11 (Tiger), 10.5.1 (Leopard)
    Memory: 2 GB
    Video Memory (VRam): 256
    Supported Video cards:

    NVIDIA GeForce 7600, 8600
    ATI Radeon X1600, X1900, HD 2400, HD 2600

    I can't vouch for the MBP, but the game runs great on my HD2600 equipped iMac with only 256 MB video memory.

    Is that the Windows version under Bootcamp or the Mac version? The latter doesn't come out in the UK until the end of April :(

    I just started playing NWN2 on my MBP. I have a 2.4GHz model with the 8600M GT w/256MB VRAM, 4GB RAM. It runs well, although, I've kept the settings towards medium. I'm only through the first act, so I don't know if later parts of the game have more beasties which might cause the performance to suffer.

    Net: seems fine on a MBP.
