So can you play fortnite with GeForce now even though it doesn’t have metal and is before 2012?
BigJigglyPiggy (1 month ago)
csgo is compatible if you don't load dust 2 because the map is very heavy now. You could get 40-60 fps on mirage,cache,office,overpass and 25 fps on inferno

I have been trying to figure out a way to play fortnite on this exact MacBook for MONTHS!!!!! I search day and night for a way to play it and none have worked. I signed up for GeForce and it’s been months but no email. I’m so MAD!!!! If anyone knows how or could give me a GeForce now code that would be much appreciated

How to game on a $200 macbook? 1) go find some for $200 on ebay. Oh yeah, plenty of stock, for sure. 2) make an upgrade with 8 gb of ram, 2 ssd, and other pricey stuff that, oh surprise, you had lying around your place. I myself had to put aside a couple of those to write this very comment. 3) Pray the Gods of Thunder and nVidia Gaming to have their Geforce Now service for free for just a little more. Beta doesn't mean a thing to me, either. 4) Have a fiber-class internet connection and, 5) still snappy, but hey! wat do u want for 200 (LOL, LMAO, ROFL... choose one) bucks... Oh, yeah, fine. Totally true legit title for your vid.

Steam In-Home Streaming > GeForce Now. Since I own a good gaming PC, I'll always have a free streaming option for my laptops, whereas GeForce Now will supposedly be over $20 per every 20 hours of gameplay once it leaves beta. When I get my 2009 unibody Macbook, I'll certainly be streaming locally from my i5-6400/RX480 build if I want to play in a different room than the rig is in.

Looks like a $200 bargain! I would have liked to see the story of you sourcing the MacBook. I added an extra 2GB and an SSD to my 2010 model and it's brilliant. Nice vid. Please don't be so shouty, I'm a bit old.

Built better than a brand-new Windows PC. I'm still rocking a 2009 MacBook Pro (13"), and it feels like a brand-new laptop. Something as simple as build quality and design allows me to be way more productive than if I were sporting some boat anchor with lame touchpad.

Lol I bought a 2010 MacBook with a bad battery for 30 bucks. It was in pretty bad condition cosmetically. Mine had a core 2 duo p8600, 2 gigs of ram, and GeForce 320m. I doubled the ram to 4 gigs and added an ssd and a used battery for 45 bucks (now 75 dollars) and it was solid

Can you get GeForce Now and keep it until you get charged for it? If so can you just throw it away and go back to garbage/potato mode by removing GeForce Now?

Abou 3 Years ago I did a similar thing with my MacBook Pro 2011 because it was getting slow, I got a Samsung EVO SSD and 16 GB of Ram and I'm still using my MacBook Pro up to this day! Nothing on the market makes me want to update and I'm the king of person who likes to update my phone every 2 years mainly because of the camera!
