I'm thinking about purchasing a Mac laptop but I need to know if I would be able to play Combat Arms smoothly via parallels or BootCamp.

Specs to play the game are as follows.

MINIMUM
OS....................Windows 2000
CPU...................Pentium 3 - 1GHz+
MEMORY................256Mb RAM
VIDEO CARD............GeForce 2 MX
DIRECT X..............Version 9.0C or later
HARD DISK SPACE.......2.0 Gb
INTERNET CONNECTION...Cable/DSL

RECOMMENDED
OS....................Windows XP or better
CPU...................Pentium 4 - 2.4GHz+
MEMORY................512Mb RAM
VIDEO CARD............GeForce FX 5600 or better
DIRECT X..............Version 9.0C or later
HARD DISK SPACE.......2.0 Gb
INTERNET CONNECTION...Cable/DSL

So again my questions are
(1) Can I play the game via parallel software or BootCamp?
(2) Based on the system requirements listed above, which Mac laptop(s) would be able to handle the game smoothly?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    1) 13" macbook should run it... (it is above rec. specs)
    2) which OS are you going to run?
    3) running windows natively on a machine will be faster than virtualization!

    Note: the new black macbook looks faster than your compaq...

    well the new macbook does have better graphics (9400M)(4000 3d mark 05 score as opposed to the x3100's 150), both should be more than enough to run combat arms but the new one does have more (&faster) RAM which would speed up overall performance... you might get away with playing some newer games on low settings with the 9400m so it might be worth it!
