    Can you play games on the current MB line?
    Hi,

    Selling my MBP soon, going to buy a refurbed Macbook, the current ones with 140mb of VRAM

    Question: I know the MB has an onboard video chipset, can it run games like World of Warcraft okay? And can it run Half-Life 2 under Windows?

    Not looking for max settings here, just want an idea of what it can do.

    Thanks everyone.

    Sure, but at Low or Medium settings with none of the fancy stuff enabled.

    Thanks Kash.

    Yeah, just looking for low settings here.

    Smooth fps though? Don't need a high FPS, just smooth enough for enjoyable gameplay.

    At low settings for most older games it can be very smooth.

    A guy in one of my classes is playing World of Warcraft on his MB. It seems to run smoothly.
