    Is this compatible?
    Geek Alert!

    Sorry if this is in the completely wrong section... but I have a question I was hoping someone could help me with.

    Lately I've been having this urge to play Oregon Trail... haha.

    I found a really cheap version online but I have no idea if it's compatible with my mac...

    Requirements for Macintosh Mac OS 8.6 9.2 OS X Power PC 180 MHz or faster 32 MB RAM 120 MB free hard disk space 640x480 monitor thousands of colors 8X CD-ROM drive

    I have no idea what that means. I know there's the intel mac that I have... and the one before that... According to the system requirements above the game would *not* work with my computer.................. would it? Maybe?

    ::crosses fingers::

    Thanks

    Nope...this game will not run on your Intel mac.

    The specs listed for the game are for a 10-12 year-old computer...and today's Intel Mac's cannot run OS 8.6-9.2.
