    Ok, I know that the MacBook is not a gaming machine, but post some games that are worth buying that are playable on the Macbook. I bought Halo and I have been playing it on a 23" ACD and it looks great (in clamshell mode of course). So, any reccomendations? Thanks.

    I play Civ IV in OS X and so far so good.

    runs well.

    Everything else, I play in bootcamp on XP

    EA games like NBA live 07 and Madden 07 are fine.
    Lego Star Wars 2 can get choppy here and there, but not too bad.

    I think it's good for average gaming

    Is Civ IV an improvemnt over Civ III?

    I loved Civ II but found Civ III a bit tedious.

    I've been playing Redline on my macbook, fun racing game.

    You can download a demo here and also buy it if you like it.

    And I've just started playing Call of Duty 2, which is very fun. :cool: :apple:

    Could someone confirm if these work or not? Especally Half-life. Thanks. Also, could someone tell me if I would get better FPS with 1.5 GB ram (1x 512, 1x 1GB) or with 1 gb ram with matched 512? Does it make a difference? Thanks

    I think there is only two slots for RAM in the MB..so you need two 1 gig sticks

    go with the full 2 gigs, it's very nice

    Is Guild Wars universal binary or Mac compatible or something? Just curious?

    Civ II was a classic. Civ III looked promising but I never figured out where to get scenarios. That's what made it great. Anyway, it ran poorly on my G3.

    O my, sketch fighter looks awesome! I am definitely giving that a try when I get home tonight!

    I agree with Civ 4- one of my favorite games, and the only game I really even play anymore these days. The best Civ since Civ I, in my opinion.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys! Wow, that pong game is fun, and it actually looks good and runs fast on my macbook! I've been using a wii remote to control sixtyforce... Man, it is fun!
