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.
on OSX it's another story.

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.
