    That won't, because it's for Mac OS 8 and 9, which use different formats than OS X. There is an OS X version though and that will work. Make sure you get the OS X version.

    LOL... well what do you think? You have the requirements right there in front of you.

    Does the macbook meet or exceed the games requirements?

    System 8 and OS9 games do not work on current Macs. Running these old applications requires the Classic environment in OSX, which would allow older, pre-OSX software to run. However, Apple stopped supporting the Classic environment after the switch to Intel processors.

    If you want to run Diablo 2, you're going to have to find the Mac OS X version. Older versions will not work on a MacBook.

    If you look at Blizzard's website, they might have a Mac OS X installer. They have one for StarCraft.
