    Does anyone know how well Rift runs on this hardware? I know the first nVidia Mac minis used nearly the same hardware as the MacBook, so if anyone has run it on that, does it run well. I'm considering getting it, but I don't want to spend the cash on a game that may or may not run well on my only Intel Mac. Here's the specs of my system:

    Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz
    6GB DDR2-800 (3GB in Windows XP)
    nVidia GeForce 9400M
    500GB HDD (120 for Windows)

    Minimum reqs are:

    OS: Windows XP, Vista or 7
    Processor: Dual Core 2.0 GHz or better
    Memory: 2 GB
    Graphics: Nvidia GeForce FX 5900, ATI/AMD Radeon X300, Intel GMA X4500 or better.

    The Intel GMA x4500 is about the same as 9400m so it ill run, although minimum reqs only.
    So it will run, but expect to have most on low.

    Actually a 9400M is about twice as fast if not more than an Intel 4500... and supports DirectX and OpenGL better as well.

    Rift should be playable in any case, just play around with the graphics settings until you find a good amount of performance.
