You need Leopard 10.5.3 to run it, looks like you'll need to upgrade. Im stuck with the original macbook with the GMA 950 so I cant even play it, i'd have to install windows and play it through there.

will the x3100 integrated video card work with spore?
i was sooo tempted to pick this game up yesterday, but i'm pretty sure it probably wont work with my macbook (2.4 intel core2duo, 2gb ram, the x3100 vid card with 144mb shared memory).

i'd go get it now, if it'd play on this book. . .but i'd be kinda suprised if it will run.
thnx.

I'm not all that computer savvy but I know i can run the Spore demo so I'm wondering if I can run the full game.

I have a macbook OS X 10.5.4 with the Intel GMA X3100... Will it work?

you can always try to download it, mean "get a free version from the internet" and try it it works!

or read the Requirement =)
"128MB video RAM (ATI Radeon X1600, NVidia Geforce 7300, or higher (Intel Integrated GMA X3100 also acceptable)"

What does Intel do in a Mac?
A hole lot more then in a PC
