    I have a 2ghz blackbook with 1gb of ram

    I have parallels with XP and have installed my reallllly old copy of HL2/CS:S on it but something happened with my account that I need a new copy of the game.

    So I was wondering...is it at all possible to run The Orange Box on a blackbook via parallels?

    for £25.99 + the cost of the orange box download from the steam site, i was up and running Team Fortress 2 on my First Gen MBP within an hour.

    MBP is not a blackbook :p

    the answer is no, you will need atleast the Macbook Pro's card (8600GT 256 or 512) in order for it to run well

    it may work if you put on it boot camp and put the
    lowest settings even then it may not play that good

    parrallels only emulates a video card and it runs at about half the speed of your main system
