    Not sure where to find specs, want to know what games I can play
    I have a 13in MacBook pro that i got a few months ago. No upgrades, haven't added anything to it. Im looking to get some games, and am not sure the specs on this and therefore if I can run them or not. 2 questions:

    1. Where do I look on the computer for a list of these specs?

    2. These are the specs of a specific game Im looking at, can I run it do you think?

    Operating System: Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later
    CPU Processor: PowerPC G4 or later
    CPU Speed: 1GHz or faster
    Memory: 256 MB or higher
    Hard Disk Space: 2.8GB free disk space
    Video Card (ATI): Radeon 7500 or better
    Video Card (NVidia): GeForce2 MX or better
    Video Memory (VRam): 32 MB or higher
    Media Required: DVD Drive

    Thanks for any help

    Specs:

    Wouldn't be so quick to say that specific game will work.

    Hardware wise, if by "I got a few months ago" means you bought a new Mac and not some used one, then yes your machine is well above the hardware requirements to run the game.

    However, since that game was designed for OS X 10.2 and you are running either 10.5 or 10.6 now, you need to check to see if that game's forum, tell us what the specific name of the game is, or use google on your own to determine if that old game will still run (or they have had patches for it) in the new OS.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Thanks
    Thanks for the help. I bought it new in April. The game I am asking about is Command and Conquer Generals deluxe. Do you think it will work properly on this computer?
