So, I have a PowerMac and PowerBook G4 that I have no real intention of getting rid of, or replacing with an Intel-based Mac as my primary machine.  However, I would like to pick up a Mac Mini (since they're relatively inexpensive) just to get a feel for how the Intel transition is going, and to learn a few new things.

If Battlefield 2 can play even half-way decent on the Mini, it might push me to go ahead and do it.  So how does it play?  Being able to use medium settings would be ideal; I can't really stand playing games at the lowest setting.

just do a search for a review of the GMA950 and youll see that its no good for anything even slightly above the lightest gaming... And in Battlefield2, medium settings is going to be impossible to manage on it im afraid.

so if youre going to get a mini anyway, then get it, but if it hinges on playing BF2, then I wouldnt personally bother, and save up for something better down the line.
