    Works great (25-30 fps at high settings) on my 2.16ghz core duo imac.

    I have the upgraded 256 7800 and 2gb of ram.

    MBP rocks HL2 no problem so I'm sure it can run it, perhaps not maxed out but well enough.

    The original Core Duo Macbook Pro's could play Half Life 2 flawlessly in boot camp. I don't see why the new ones wouldn't be able to handle all of the games in Orange Box.
