    You could always install it and find out.

    I had it on my 2.4ghz BlackBook with 4 gb's of ram and it ran pretty good. Not great, but good.

    It'll run but it won't run great.
    If you dumb down the settings for your MacBook, it'll be ok.
    It won't be snappy, and it'll feel a little bit slow.

    Your iMac on the other hand will handle the game pretty well.

    On the same hardware, the Sims 3 runs a lot better on Windows. (Bootcamp)
    I haven't tried the update yet, which apparently fixes Mac OS X graphics problems though.

    Thanks! I will go try it and if it works it works, if it doesn't, it doesn't. :D
