Has anyone had any problems running civilization 4 on their macbook?

I have the newest macbook that came out a few weeks ago.

* 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
* 2GB memory
* 160GB hard drive1
* Double-layer SuperDrive

Think it would run OK on my macbook??

thanks

The game wants either:
Video Card (ATI): Radeon 9600 or better
or
Video Card (NVidia): GeForce FX 5200 or better
and
Video Memory (VRam): 64 MB or higher

And the macbooks only have an intel integrated graphics card. GMA X3100 if I am correct. So I think it wouldn't work. But I'd ask around as these new integrated cards can do more than most people think.

I've tried it the demo on my macbook with 64mb of vram, 2 gigs of ram, and a 2.0 dual core processor. It worked okay, i had all the graphics on as low as they could get, and the animations were all a bit choppy. It could work with your machine, although i would suggest just getting civ 3. To my knowledge niether work with leopard. Civ 4 demo here
