    I have a question. If it has been asked before I apologize ahead of time.
    I want to purchase NFL Gamepass but I don't want to spend the money if it won't work on my macbook.
    Here is what NFL Game pass requires

    PowerPC G3 600 MHz
    Pentium III 1GHz with a minimum of 512MB of memory
    Mac OS X 10.4+
    Firefox v1.5+: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox
    Macromedia Flash Player 9: http://www.adobe.com/products/flash/about/
    Flip4Mac v2.0+: http://www.flip4mac.com *
    Video adapter and monitor: Super VGA (1024x768) or higher.

    Gamepass has a demo, and that worked on my computer. Is it safe to say the actual gamepass would work as well?? I don't know what flip4mac is either.
    I'm not computer savvy when it comes to hardware/software(?) and I want to get my facts straight before I potentially waste 240 dollars... Thanks for any help in advance. :eek:

    Yes, it will work on your Mac.
    Flip4Mac is a version of WMV (Windows Media Video) player for the Mac. This is almost a necessity for any Mac users who watch video online.

    I had a mixed experience with Gamepass, even on a pretty good internet connection. At times it was amazing, especially outputting to a projector. At other times the Gamepass service slowed to a crawl and was unwatcheable, despite numerous speedtests telling me that it wasn't my connection. The Macbook itself was fine if you don't mind the fans running nonstop for however long you watch the games.

    I have read about that.. maybe it was your thread??
    I played the 6:00 demo and the quality and speed was great.
    Hopefully it will be the same for the real thing..

    If the minimums are a G3 or 10.4, why wouldn't it work on a MacBook? ;)

    As long as you have Firefox, Flash, and Flip4Mac.
