when using a 2009 standard 13" macbook pro, in quite decent condition, but with a fairly full HD, I find the game to be playable, and it can be viewed properly even at the highest settings. When playing a closed game, things run smoothly, but multiplayer gameplay lags so badly, at even the lowest graphical settings, (which may be a connection or server issue, but it is constant), that I find it to be difficult at times with what is going on in the game, my ally will be right beside me, there will be a small hoard of enemies, then my ally will be on the other side of the scene, all the enemies dead, and I didn't see anything happen; and I fairly firmly believe that a stronger GPU, and an emptier HD would serve to produce significantly smoother results.

You should be fine for gameplay, and I'd recommend setting it to always use the 6750M gpu. There are reporting of FPS cycling on higher end GPUs but we're working on a patch to address that issue.

Should be fine. We released a patch (1.0.2b) to help with performance issues on 9400M, so your play experience should be fine.

Should be fine also. The Intel HD 4000 is above the Intel HD 3000.

I am an imac user and someone who has the Radeonx1600 graphics card. I thought I wouldn't be able to play the game when I found out that that my video card isn't supported. However, I followed these directions: http://www.lightchan.com/fix-diablo-3-black-screen-on-mac-and-windows-pc/ and now I can play the game. /happiness
I have a MacBook pro with
Processor 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT 512 MB
Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4 (11E53)

Since the latest patch the game has become unplayable on my computer. Any ideas what is wrong? I know about the energy saver prefs. I have it setup right.

Thanks

Blizzard,

Refer to, Australian Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth).

Now, see ACL (Australian Consumer Law) [located within Schedule 2 of the Act]

Turn to the guarantees contained within Division 2 of the ACL.

Note that you have listed 9400M as a supported card.

@Waddington- The 9400M is supported, but only on 10.6.8 and 10.7.4. Patch 1.0.2b should have resolved most issues with lower end chipsets like this one. If you are still having issues, you will need to create a new thread with the information at hand.

Would the formenr be able to run diablo 3 on decent settings?
I'd advise against getting a Retina macbook pro. Apple discussion boards are reporting a lot of issues with screen image burn in or image retention on the devices. Also a lot of battery issues are now cropping up. Apple glues the battery to the computer making it impossible to replace without replacing the whole computer. Basically like an iPad.
I am buying a new MacBook Pro this weekend and would like to understand whether I can get the 13" with the Intel HD Graphics 4000, or if I need to get the more expensive 15" with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M. I see the system requirements for Diablo III are at least an NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT, but I also see the Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphics card as supported (although labeled "low performance"). I am not clear on what any of this mean, but I do have friends who play Diablo III on MacBook Pros without NVIDIA, and even one who plays on a MacBook Air (!). Why is NVIDIA called a "minimum" requirement, and what effect will it have if I go without it? Many thanks!
