    I have an i5 imac as well and it plays it perfectly.. you won't be able to have it on max settings though.. medium is about right.

    only took me about an hour and half to download it last night.
    Took me almost as long for it to process my order, kept saying unable to process your order try again.


    Runs great on my i3. Much better than the Crossover version.

    CPU should be fine, it's the GPU to worry about

    Two points: It's a Source-engine game. If you can play Portal, or Half-Life 2, or Team Fortress 2 on your Mac, then L4D2 should work fine too.

    Second point is that Steam seems to be struggling a bit this week with lots of updates. I bought L4D2 on Tuesday night (GMT+1) but I got continuous "Server Too Busy" messages downloading until Wednesday morning. Game downloaded OK over the course of yesterday and I could play it OK last night.

    (I've got an i7 late-2009 27" iMac with the 512MB ATI Radeon HD 4850. Source-engine games at native resolution and high settings (but with AA turned off) get ~50fps steady for me on OS X. Including L4D2)
