    I made this post in "Buying Advice" as well, so forgive me if I'm not supposed to post the same message twice, but I thought it might be appropriate for this board as well...

    Will the new 12" iBook be able to run the Sims 2? I don't do a lot of gaming, but I would love to be able to play this one, and I was hoping that the iBook would update the video card with more memory... but it didn't, so uh, now I don't know.

    The minimum requirements are an ATI Radeon 9000 or up, with 32mb of VRAM... which I suppose the new iBook has, but I know that a lot of games don't work very well at all with only the minimum requirements.

    So, what do you all think? Has anyone played Sims 2 on one of the previous iBooks, and did that work? Will it work better with the new video cards on the new iBooks, do you think?

    Thanks for your help...

    I don't think that you are supposed to post threads twice in different areas, but I am not a mod... :p

    I think that the new iBook will play Sims 2 better than the old ones, but that is not saying much. I hear that the game eats up hardware pretty good, or at least I believe I remember that from other threads here. I know there are some threads already here on what plays this game well, so you might want to search and see what they say. I have the game, but haven't installed it on my 1.5ghz 15" PB yet, so I have no idea how well it plays. Anyway, good luck. :)
