should reaaaaally add the nvidia geforce 9400m to the unsupported list. could have saved people money for something that works instead of just making money.

I have a late 2008 model Aluminum MacBook (MacBook,5.1) maxed out with everything (2.4GHz, 8GB RAM) which has the Nvidia 9400M.

To be honest its a 3.5 year old laptop which is past it in laptop terms so I didn't really think D3 would run on it. I'm (a)surprised that its listed as supported and (b) not surprised by the comments in the thread that its dog slow. Has anyone tried it on Windows 7 under bootcamp?

I'm lucky enough to also have a 9 month old fully featured iMac so will be able to play the game at home (but I travel a lot) however I'm expecting that when WoW MoP comes out that *wont* be supported on my MacBook.

Time for a new laptop!
I know everyone is asking just about that same question here but I have to ask. These are my following specs for my imac. My question is if I upgrade to a newer version of Mac OS X does the rest of my specs support the Diablo 3 game?

What would I have to change or would it be easier and cheaper to just buy a new comp? Is there anyway D3 in the future can make this game work for me? Thank you for helping me.

I have a macbook pro from 2008 and has all the minimum requirements. i downloaded the digital copy of diablo 3 but when i try to run the installation it says that my mac does not support on this type of mac. do i need to buy a new mac just to play or os there some way to fix this?
Arrrg. I saw that my graphic card (9400m) was supported and went out and bought the game. But now I realize it´s completely unplayable even at the lowest settings and resolutions.

Macbook Pro:
Intel Core 2 Duo
2,53 Ghz
4 GB
Okay, so i've been playing for the last couple of days. I'm currently sporting the nVidia 9600 GT card which has 512 MB's of VRAM. I've read that i should be able to play the game on lower-medium to medium settings without any major lag issues, but I've had quite another experience. it seems like whenever I play i 3-4 seconds of slow-motion, followed by 0,5-1 sec of sped up gameplay. This wasn't bothering me much on normal difficulty, but ever since I got to nightmare I discovered that my babarian just can't quite handle jumping into the middle of a pack with either champions or rare mobs, with little "micro" if you will.

- I really don't get why this is happening, i've tried playing on the lowest resolution (even though it didnt suggest it) with background effects set to 1 fps and i still get this.
All my settings are currently on low / off with little to no difference performance with tinkering with resolution.

Seeing as I died my way though 1st act of nightmare, I'd like to see this answered so I can start pwning Belial in Act 2!

-Cheers, Jon

My MacMini doesn't seem to meet the video requirements: NVIDIA GeForce 9400,
and I'm running 10.5.8.

I really want to BUY Diablo 3, but why are the requirements so high? Are there any
ways around this?

If I meet all the min requirements but i only have 1 GB of Ram will i still be able play?
thanks for the horrible job advertising the video card situation just wasted 60 bucks on this game u guys didn't think that it would be nice to know half of us needed a new video card i mean honestly now ...makes no sense for people to be able to play diablo 2 on a computer but need something different to play diablo 3 next time advertise this !@#$ game, companiess just looking to make a quick buck . inconsiderate
Why I can only play on low resolution?

I got a MACBOOK PRO 15" (10.6.8)
2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
2GB ram
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256MB.

Please inform me what more do I need to do to play D3 on a better resolution than 1024x640.
What about chipset model AMD Radeon HD 6750M? Supported or nay?
I feel scammed.. I don't see how they couldn't see these problems while they were testing game-play through a mac system that supposedly meets the requirements.
Misleading minimum system requirements...

2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M

...and calling it playable with all the lowest settings is a stretch. Usually runs at 15 FPS and consistant drops to 8 FPS with spikes down to 2 FPS. In boss fights, I'd consider that unplayable.

Am I the only one who finds it nuts to begin with that the default for my video card is 800x600? When was the last time a Mac came with a non-widescreen display?

Unfortunately, I can't be bothered to fight with Blizzard for a refund so I'll just say this: If you have a 9400M, seriously consider saving your money unless they fix it.

hey, wondering if diablo will sun smooth on low setting on my mac. im not very tech savvy.
mac os x version 10.6.8
2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Dou
2 GB memory 1067 MHz DDR3
NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics card.
they wont refund there only trying to make money they wont give anything back in return especially since they knew this was gonna be a big problem for ppl
Performance issues seem to be a huge, and known issue, across Macbook Pro users with 9400...is this going to be patched?
