civIV just barely works on my macbook. it runs after telling you it won't run, and you basicallly have to turn off all the animations, sounds, and eye candy. you'll also have much better luck with a small map and few civs. and actually as you progress it gets slower and slower.

you may not have much luck with civIII either since i'm pretty sure it's not a universal binary. it'll probably run, but very slowly and really tax the system.

the macbooks are in a weird place. there are a lot of ppc games that seem like they should run fine but are very slow. and there aren't a lot of universal games that are resource lean enough to run really well in OSX (though some people have gotten some games to work ok). check this thread for more info:

what games are working on your macbook
