My first take on this would be the integrated graphics card in your macbook can't handle the graphics of the game. I think it needs a dedicated graphics card from an imac or macbook pro for example. Not 100% sure on this though.

It should be able to handle it i have COD4 on a Windoze Partition that run great have you tried changing games display settings. Or it could be that your drivers aren't updated.

how could my drivers not be updated on a brand new computer....how/where do i update them....

I tried changeing the video settings to the lowest setting, it should work, i mean i can see character models and the sky models, and the opening movies played great.

a macbook cannot run BF even at lower settings... integrated graphics are not powerful enough to run that game.
