    You can. With many intense games, you have to crank down the graphics, and you should have at elast 1 gig of memory. It will run games alright though.

    Unreal tournament 2004 works fine on my Macbook, though it does kind of lag in 1280x800 mode. Then again, it worked okay on my old PPC Mac Mini. It's Universal binary now, as well.

    Wanna do the latest games? Get a console.

    some do, some don't. sometimes it depends more on whether the game was built to run on ppc or whether its a universal app then the graphics processor.
