Hi - I'm not hugely into gaming, however, i have just bought a new MacBook (black) to take away traveling with me.

Figure I'm going to be spending loads of time in airports and downtime in Hostels etc.

Can anyone recommend a cool game(s) for the MacBook - i hear / read that gaming is not really suited to the MacBook - but there must be something out there. like role playing or FPS.

thanks.

A MacBook - all models, are not well suited to play graphic intensive games. Some will work OK while others will be disappointing. However, there are a myriad of other types of games which can be played. Check out the Apple site for game downloads. If a game interests you, go to the author's web site and read up on the requirements before downloading.

I play LOTRO(Lord of the rings online) in my 2.0 With no problems, the graphics are low but the game doesn't chop.
