    What games will play on a Macbook
    I was looking for an older game that I can fiddle with between or during class I was just wondering if there were any games that would run decent on the onboard graphics card. I am partial to the roleplaying games but just about any would work.

    try Warcraft 3. Or Diablo. OR check out Apple.com because they have a list of games for the Mac. OR look into Bootcamp/Parallels which allow you to partition your harddrive and run Windows.

    You should be able to play some reasonable games on the macbook. I have certainly had Unreal Tournament (the first one) running very quickly on my macbook. Unfortunately that port was abandoned at the alpha stage so it crashes a lot, but it proves that the graphics hardware can take it.

    Personally, I play Oolite a lot. As you can probably tell from the name, it's a mac native port of Elite (the original), with a whole bunch of additions.

    This game Aoe should work with the mac book... It is an excellent game but I have not tried it on the mac but the engine is pretty good and does not hog or over work the video...

    I do suggest looking it up though on third party site

    Almost any game up until 2004-2005 should run quite well on the macbook (except for the most graphically intensive FPS and racing games).

    Make sure the ones you get have universal binaries available, or look into using boot camp for gaming.

    Easily.

    Processor 450MHz G4 or faster processor
    Operating System Mac OS X version 10.2.6 or higher
    RAM 256 MB
    Hard Disk Installation 2.1 GB
    Video Card 32 MB or higher video card
    Multiplayer
    Even under Rosetta that game should run...

    For some reason I don't like boot camp, even though I have not given it a try.

    BootCamp is Great. Works as advertised. It's Windows that gives real Mac users issues! :spook:

    When I first saw XP boot on a Mac it did bother me, but I am used to it, but truthfully never use it. I have a PC for any Windows usage I need, mostly Games.

    on my Core Duo mini I played GTA3 and Vice City and they were quite smooth under Windows. As far as Mac games, as long as it's not like Doom III or Quake IV, it probably would play ok.

    I ran world of warcraft no problem on my powerbook G4 1.5ghz so it should run great on your macbook. I haven't tried it on my Mac Pro yet.
