FS2004 on a 13" MacBook?

Guest

At the moment I use my parents' PC for FS2004... a Dell PowerEdge SC420 with a 2.66GHz Prescott P4, 512MB DDR2-533 ECC RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce FX5500 (PCI) w/ 256MB... needless to say, FS2004 at just 19fps (set) with medium graphics, runs not too well. It skips frames (runs ok for a second then skips a frame and continues this), especially when there's advanced scenery such as overcast or scattered clouds.

I might be getting a 13" Apple MacBook pretty soon and would put Apple
s Boot Camp on it (lets you run Windows natively). The specs of the computer would be as follows: 1.83GHz Core Duo, 2GB DDR2-667 RAM, 60GB 5400rpm HD. and (sadly) a 64MB GMA950 integrated graphics card. How would FS2004 perform? Would the fast CPU + RAM be able to compensate for the lack of a good graphics card?

Don't expect high FPS with a 64mb card, set your slides to low and see how it does then start to move some up.

Yeah I'm not looking for anything above 24, as a matter of fact, 19 is fine... I just don't want it to lag and have low quality (look like FS2000).
