    Would this type of game run smoothly on the white macbook, or a mac mini?:confused:

    I tried it on my white 2.1 ghz 1GB MacBook, and to get it playable I had to turn down the graphics settings to the absolute minimum allowed. Anything higher and it would lag like crazy. And at the lowest settings, it looks so bad it's barely even worth playing.

    COD1 and COD2 play great on high settings, though.

    Runs and looks great 1920*1200, 2x AA and high settings on an 2008 imac with the 8800gs and 4 GB RAM....

    I was surprised that the AA didnt kill the FPS, but it didnt!

    The white MacBook will do very poorly owing to its integrated Intel graphics. If the mini is a last-generation mini, it will also do very poorly for the same reason. If the mini is a current-generation one (with integrated NVidia graphics), it will fare much better -- you won't be playing at high resolution with maxed out settings, but it should be able to provide a perfectly playable framerate.

    The current white MacBook uses the nVidia chipset like the new mini. Graphics are 5 X faster than the previous MacBook (Intel X3100).

    What about the 13 inch aluminum unibody with 2 gig ram? I'm thinking about acquiring this game possibly.
