Freespace open on Macbook

As the minimum sys reqs are quite modest, I would expect the game to run smoothly, even with the GMA950.

That wasn't condescending at all. Gamecuber wasn't clear on which game he was referring to (Freespace, Freespace 2, or either of the "open" varieties), so I just asked him if he knew that there was a huge difference in system requirements. I was awaiting a response before going into further detail.
Anyway, Freespace 2's requirements on the PC side are easily within the range of the Macbook and its pitiful GMA950:
200 MHz Pentium
32 MB RAM
Generic DirectX 6.0 3D Accelerator
FS2_Open, on the other hand, is hard to nail down because there are a lot of different options as to how much detail will be displayed. The requirements are constantly moving upwards. Personally, I think that you might get it to run at 800x600 without the advanced_effects package.

Freespace Open's sys reqs demand a G4/867Mhz. Hardly top of the line.
There's this wonderful invention called Google...

As I won't be buying a new macbook until late Summer/early Autumn) there's a good chance that it might already carry this new graphics system. I don't have the budget to buy a Macbook Pro, so all I can do is pray and wait...
