My MacBook is a Late 2007 MacBook. It doesn't meet the necessary requirements from Apple to upgrade to OS X 10.9.
Tried playing STO and it still keeps crashing. Id assume the graphics card (Intel GMA X3100 144 MB) would work still but be of ok(ish) quality for me to play until i get my new MBP but it's not.
The X3100 was barely passable for even casual gaming at release in 2007. STO released 3 years later and it's 3 years past that now. I doubt there's anything in the verse that will get STO to run even passably on that system, especially taking the hit being wrapped in cider.
In contrast today's "integrated" GFX are much better and the HD4000 is quite good at low to middling settings and resolutions. Even the HD3000 is passable on low settings for a lot of games.
