    Does anybody know how well the Total War games (Rome, and Medieval) run on the new intel macs running bootcamp? I have always wanted to play those games, but am hesitant to upgrade either my desktop or laptop...

    I play Rome: Total War with my Macbook 2.0 CD with 2 GB of ram. It's definitely playable, but can be a little laggy at times. I am almost positive that having a dedicated video card would fix this problem.

    I played the demo on my Mb it was playable but a little laggy sometimes, but still playable.

    Yea, i have been hesitant to get anything but the MacPro, just because it has the best (and upgradable) graphics card... but i just don't have the cash to spend... i guess i'll wait for my current ibook to die, and hope a new laptop comes out with a better graphics card... or maybe a mini with a better card... thanks for the input

    I play Rome:TW, Mediaeval:TW and Shogun:TW on my Core (Not 2) Duo Macbook Pro 15" absolutely fine in Boot Camp. No problems whatsoever.
