    I am a complete newbie to running Windows games on a Mac. I have a mid-2009 15" Macbook Pro, 2.53ghz with 8mb RAM with Invidia GeForce 9400m 256mb.

    I do not own a copy of Windows to install, and I don't want to install Windows.

    Is there some port, or some way I can run my Windows copies of Morrowind and Oblivion on this Mac? (I got them back when I had a Windows laptop for a while) I don't even know where to begin, so any really basic help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    yes... there are wrappers you can use to make them work like Mac apps... go check out the forums at where hobby porters share their wrappers. I've run Morrowind and Oblivion both... they both run with Wineskin ports, but I believe last I tried Oblivion ran at a higher frame rate in the Cider hacked versions.

    You'll have to run really low res and details on Oblivion with a 9400m, but it *should* work.
