I want to download and play Left 4 Dead from Steam... I'm not sure whether my MacBook can run it. According to Wikipedia, the system requirements for a Mac are:

  • Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.4
  • Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT, ATi Radeon HD 2400, or Intel HD Graphics 3000
  • 7.5 GB of free hard disk space


I have Lion, 2GB of RAM, more than enough hard-drive space, 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo... But I'm not sure what kind of graphics card I have.

So... Can I play the game? :D

Macbook with windows should play this game really smooth.

They both use OpenGL, they both run on Intel, it'll run the same regardless of platform.

That's not 100% true. Benchmarks have shown that games on Windows run fastest if you exclude the few games that fun on Linux.
