Why is the Mac / OS X version so resource intensive? My whole laptop crawls to a stop when Twilight Struggle is running and the fan spins up loud enough to hear from the next room. This game isn't that complicated, there's virtually no video, so what's up?

One of the reasons I don't play that regularly, it feels like my laptop is dying a slow death.

This only happens when you are playing the USSR. In that case, your resources are being controlled by a centralized state and being re-distributed to proletariat processes on your machine. This is more noticeable on Apple products as they are decadent, imperialist tools of the bourgeoisie.

Not having played it, but knowing about computer and games i can throw out a wild guess: turn ON vsync… (if that is possible in the game)
