Hi,

I want to buy Tomb Raider Anniversary for my new Macbook. I have played the demo and that runs fine, only freezes when streaming off the disc. The full game spec says it will not support integrated graphics cards.

Will this be a problem or will it run fine? I am fine on the rest of the spec its just this one issue and I don't want to pay 40 for something that won't work!

Your Macbook has integrated graphics and you state that the system requirements specifically mention that the game will not work on a system with integrated graphics.

So do I think it will work fine? Oh yea, definitely...

It states that It will not work with GMA integrated cards. It is only designed for Intel.

Thanks for your understanding support for a new Mac user.

OK, I went to the game site to check the system requirements myself.

Quote:
Minimum System Requirements

Processor: 1.83GHz
RAM: 512MB
Graphics: 64MB
Mac OS: 10.4
Hard Disk: 4GB
Drive: DVD
Input: Mouse
Recommended System Requirements

Processor: 2.4GHz
RAM: 1GB
Graphics: 128MB
Mac OS: 10.5
Hard Disk: 4GB
Drive: DVD
Input: Game Pad

This game will run on GMA graphics cards with shared RAM.

Intel Only
Designed for Intel processors only
The bolded part above answers your question.
