If by 'MacBook' you mean the 12" retina MacBook, I don't see why not.

It has the specs needed, even on the base model with 1.1GHz Core M CPU.

As I'm curious - how does it handle 720p 60fps under wifi? Is there much visual degradation and artifacting? How about input latency?
There's a bit of visual degradation but nothing too noticeable. While on the same network at home, it handled 720p 60fps fine. I have noticed input lag ( I usually play RPG's so it doesn't really affect me),so I wouldn't recommend any game like requires precision like FPS.

Completely didn't work for me. 110Mbps on my WiFi. rMB 1.2G 512SSD. Just kept hanging and looked horrible. Couldn't get anything to work. Had to use the dongle for the USB connection to the PS4 controller. Probably user error.

I've used remote play on my 2009 MBP with a Core 2 Duo processor. It's certainly not the computer holding it back. Check your network settings.

Works fine for me on my 08 c2d white MacBook (4gb rAm, SSD) when I have a fast enough wifi connection for ps4 remote play to begin engaging. At home it works, I hav about 29mbps, at work it does not get past the ps4 remote box saying internet too slow, tests at 19-20 Mbps.

Did you have any trouble at first? I have a late 2008 macbook pro but the app just crashes everytime i try to sign in or have the remote connected and press the option button
