Hi all,

I have a Macbook (mid 2008) 2.4 Ghz Intel Core Duo and 4GB of RAM, plus the standard graphic specs that came with the mac [Chipset Model:GMA X3100, Type: GPU, Bus: Built-In, VRAM (Total):144 MB] with SL 10.6.1.
I have also VMware Fusion 2.0.6 with Windows XP Home edition; I usually give 1GB or max 2GB of memory to the virtual machine (this happens when I use Photoshop).

I was planning to buy Pro Evolution Soccer (either 2009 or 2010) and install it on my XP virtual machine. Do you think that the virtual machine will run the game smoothly? or should I use a bootcamp partition and install the game there?

Thanks for the help, I appreciate

Best,

Mauro Mondino

For best results run the game natively in Windows. That means using Boot Camp to create a partition and to install Windows. Your GPU is an integrated Intel chipset and running it in a VM for a game such as Soccer will result in poor performance.

I very much doubt that any sophisticated game will run on your computer. The Intel graphics chip is pretty limited has no dedicated video memory.
