hi is there anyone playing gw on the newly-released macbooks? (not macbook pro) any ratings for the performance?

Considering the macbooks still run on a macintosh OS you still cannot play GW on them.

Unless, of course, you've obtained Bootcamp and managed to run windows on them. In which case, if someone's gone this far to get GW on their mac, I'd love to hear the results. :P

just choose the game as guild wars... i'm mostly concerned with whether the integrated graphics card is powerful enough..

thx in advance!:smiley:

I'm sure the variants with X1400 (?) graphics can do GW on medium settings.

You should probably let Apple know then because apparently they didn't get the memo (http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/graphics.html).

In that case, it will be a slideshow even at the lowest settings. I've tried running GW on integrated Intel chips and it's not a pretty sight.
