Default Would this computer run PR Mac book Pro

Ive been trying to get my friend who likes tactile shooters into pr for a while and they finally agreed to give it a shot. He has a Mac book Pro

Specs
2.0GHz or 2.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor with 6MB shared L3 cache; or optional 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor with 8MB shared L3 cache 4GB (two 2GB SO-DIMMs) of 1333MHz DDR3 memory; two SO-DIMM slots support up to 8GB

500GB or 750GB 5400-rpm Serial ATA hard drive; optional 750GB 5400-rpm hard drive, 500GB 7200-rpm hard drive, or 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB solid-state drive6 8x slot-loading SuperDrive (DVD?R DL/DVD?RW/CD-RW) Maximum write: 8x DVD-R, DVD+R; 4x DVD-R DL (double layer), DVD+R DL (double layer), DVD-RW, DVD+RW; 24x CD-R; 10x CD-RW Maximum read: 8x DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-ROM; 6x DVD-ROM (double layer DVD-9), DVD-R DL (double layer), DVD+R DL (double layer), DVD-RW, DVD+RW; 24x CD

I don't know anything about computers so i don't know what is useful in that mess of information.

This should be moved to bf2pr support I think.

If it is the 2011 15 inch or 17 inch macbook pro, then he'll be able to play PR at semi-reasonable fps, however his details will have to be reasonably low.

If he has the 13 inch version, then his laptop is like mine (no discrete graphics processor) and as such even if he runs PR in a 800x600 window with everything at low, he'll still struggle to break 30fps on a lot of maps.

I hope that helps you. Basically you just have to figure out his screen size (assuming it's one of the latest models) to know if he can play.

What do you consider reasonable i get around 20 fps on low settings on maps like mutrah and I can play fine and win fire fights.

To me, half the monitor's refresh rate is the minimum acceptable rate (so 30), but some people do feel that 20-30 is acceptable.

With this laptop with the intel HD whatever IGP (like the 13 inch macbook), my computer got down to 7 fps on fallujah at some places, 12 on ramiel, and ~17-25 on karbala.

Those were not acceptable to me.

I have played PR since early 2006 on reasonably top notch hardware since the early days (gaming being my primary pastime), and as such I really notice the low frame rates heavily and the lack of detail due to low settings. I can definitely say that target acquisition on low settings is far harder than at 1680x1050 @ all high @ 8x AA @ >60fps. That being said I'm only really testing fps these days, not playing the game (as it's rather impossible with <30fps for me)

Im playing on a iMac 27" with Core i5 Quad 2,8 GHz.
4 GB 1333 Ram
Res. 2560 x 1440
Opt. all High (lighting mid for targets in buildings & hidingspots)
AA x8

OS WIN 7 64Bit Home Premium

Works better then on my PC, which was a 4 x 3GHz, Res. 1920 x 1200.


PR should running very well on the Mac book Pro , but there is no Info about the Graphics Card.

I think the AMD 6490M 256 MB Version can't handle it very well.

I played PR for two straight years on a 2008 MacBook Pro, as long as he gets a 15" or 17" it will run fine. If he can, he should get the faster processor, in the 2011 editions it is paired with a slightly more powerful card with a lot more memory.

I'm on an old macbook pro (think 2009) and I need to run it on all low with the odd medium. I get low framerate. Used to be on medium but PR just got a bigger demand with the recent updates. So your friend should be AOK!

Good news about the iMac there Pete since I'm going to save up for the top of the line iMac as well. Hoping it can run ARMA 2 as well. Have you tried running that?
