First, I'm hoping I'm posting in the right area.

Alright as people should know, Steam came out for Mac today and looking for some Mac gamers, so if anyone wants to add me, add xanafiedspartan.

iMac 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo - 4GB RAM - 500 GB HDD - Nvidia 9400M
Macbook Pro 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo - 4 GB RAM - 320 GB HDD - Nvidia 320M

Hmm...I wonder if my MBP 2.26GHz with Nvidia 9400M will handle some of those games at medium settings.

Here's some screenshots of portal.
the frame rate isn't spectacular on my iMac, but it's better than no portal at all! ZachAttack010 is my username

Yes it will, i played games in bootcamp on that exact mac.

Portal runs fine, Left4Dead and L4D2 run fine on medium settings, half life runs well. Day of Defeat and Counter Strike as smooth as butter.

All the other indie games should run pretty much fine too!

As a gauge, I have a 15" MBP 2.8ghz with the 9600 gt mobile and it runs portal very smoothly at max settings.
