I have signed up with my MacBook Air. Let's see how Multiwinia plays on a machine with no graphics card! (Note: Darwinia under Windows actually does okay on this machine).

Only Mac Pros actually have graphics cards. All other current Macs just have graphics chips :)

So, what I said was not incorrect. ;)

You should really be a bit more specific Zr40, someone who wasn't tech savy would think that ALL macs except mac pros didn't have graphics cards. I believe you are talking about the notebook line? ;)

The real distinction is between the MacBook Air and basic MacBooks, as compared with MacBook Pros. The pros have much more powerful chipsets than the Air or the basic MacBook. MacBooks and MBAs use shared video RAM, and a crappy Intel chipset, while the pros use NVIDIA chipsets, with dedicated VRAM.

It should run fine on your Mac Air, after all, IV's cross platform compatibility knows no bounds!

I would be an idiot not to sign up. I LOVE introversion games, and I have beta tested several games in the past (blizzard mostly). I hope that I get picked, my entire existence revolves around this.

Is true! Uplink runs on an electric pencil sharpener, too.
