Question Do you run games on your Mini 9? - 06-25-2009, 07:03 AM

If so, what?

and how's the performance?

I'd like to run some older games I own (Commandos 3 Berlin etc) as I run Windows XP, but I'm interested in how it'll handle newer titles too?

Guild Wars gets between 5 and 10 FPS. [I am playing it in WINE though, so ...]
Basically, don't expect too much.

Received lowest quality mini 9 with 512 megs RAM, 4 GB SSD. Additions:
-4 GB SSD [2 GB SD Card: getting 16 GB SDHC]
Sold for $180 so I could buy Mini 10, XP/Ubuntu, 160GB HD, 1GB RAM, 1366x768 screen, 6-cell for $260.
[Extra screen space IS AMAZING, as is having a working keyboard]

As long as the game doesn't require specs beyond what the Mini provides, as with any PC game and setup, you should do just fine... I dug out my old copy of Revolt, set up the controls just right so I can hold it like a gameboy and it totally helps pass the time waiting for my turn to donate plasma.

I have the Mac version of Braid installed, but haven't tried it yet.

It runs fine, not 100% smooth but very playable, to me.

Dude, I'd love to run a NES or SEGA emultor (N64 could be sweet too) and keep everything on my external HD. Does anyone know of a good one that works with OSX?
