So I'm playing on a previous model mac book
specs:
  Model Name: MacBook
  Model Identifier: MacBook4,1
  Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
  Processor Speed: 2.1 GHz
  Number Of Processors: 1
  Total Number Of Cores: 2
  L2 Cache: 3 MB
  Memory: 1 GB
  Bus Speed: 800 MHz

Certainly not idyllic, far from it. Even on short render distance I average between 7-19 fps =/ but the jumps between are very choppy. Graphics are on fast. I really don't want to cut down render to short, otherwise I won't be able to see anything until I'm practically on top of it (which doesn't really matter while strip mining, but that's neither here nor there). How can I change stuff around in my systems preferences to increase frame rate like drop resolution on my computer overall?

Firs of all,go to this link and read and do everything it says (if possible)  http://www.minecraft...hp?f=17&t=26219

If that doesnt work,I have nothing else to offer because Thats what I used to improve framerate.

Read before answering. MAC.

Please, tell us what graphics card it has. That is the most important thing when playing games.

You can do a few things.
If you run Snow Leopard, you can copy the 64 bit java application stub from your java install into the app. Then change the architecture to x86_64 in the plist file.

Some other things you can do without SL:
install Opti-fog mod, it helps more than optimine.
in the plist file, change the ram to the max.
also in the plist, change rendering to opengl, instead of al
another thing, is you can activate threaded garbage collection.

If you need, I can make a video with all of these things.

There probably not much you can do, because if you have an integrated gpu, your cpu is going to take a ton of load off the igp and lagg a ton. You can try installing some mods like optimine and keeping the minecraft screen res at defualt though.
