mid-low, 1280x720. 20-30 fps. i've got a laptop with a intel GMA 4500m (which is a bit weaker than yours) and i'm able to get 12 fps on mid-low. so i'm expecting it will be like 20-30 fps on mid-low

Can an Intel core 2 duo T5550 1.83ghz CPU and Intel 965 GMA Express family GPU with 3GB of RAM, run this? What does the GD adjusted Requirements mean? The Minimum table says that this can run at minimum but the GD adjusted says it's too low

I'm concerned with other members being mislead that they can get 100FPS with a rig like yours when it wouldn't be possible, as for Macbook …. I couldn't really help because I have no experience with Apple products, sorry buddy
