Not working correctly on Macbook Pro with Nvidia 650M

Despite what it may say on this page, the game doesn't run properly on Nvidia 650M equipped machines. My machine is a Macbook Pro (late 2013), i7 CPU, 16GB RAM, 1GB Nvidia 650M and a 512GB SSD. Video performance is poor and the frame rate fluctuates wildly, sometimes seemingly stopping at some points during gameplay. This problem is most noticeable during multiplayer mode. If you look down the sights, the framerate drops to about 2fps, only for short periods of time but enough to mean that you always get killed. It states in the blurb that Nvidia cards are not supported with the exception of the 650M but that is wrong. I have lost £17 on this game, if you have an Nvidia gfx card, do yourself a favour and avoid this title.

Black Ops on my iMac

I own a late 2013 iMac 21.5 inch with a quad core Intel core i5, 8GB of RAM and Intel Iris Pro graphics 1024Mb. I’m running the game on maximum settings and it runs BEAUTIFULLY!!! If you have this mac or any similar, buy this game! Brilliant maps and the multiplayer is always busy with players on cool servers and wonderful graphics. The story is okay i guess but i just use it for zombies and multiplayer. In my opinion, the best game on mac store.

Need some improovments but its good enough!

This game is a great port with every single feature of the Conesole/PC Edition. Except the ability to invite people. There are only some improovments I would add to this port.
- Graphics closely reseamble the actual game, but no dynamic shadows are in this. The textures, even on high at 1440p the textures are all pixelated when I walk up to it.
-Ability to add GameCenter friends. It would be a nice gimick to have because it would be easier than to just go into a match and tell them to click it at the same time.
-FPS is always Capped at 40, and sometimes dropping. It would be good if it was capped at 60, although this is not a critical thing to improve on, it would be nice if it was.
Aside from those little things it works great on my iMac.
