Running ACAD 2012 on 2008 unibody MacBooks, is it possible?

There's no way I could get AutoCAD 2012 for Mac to run on a late 2008 aluminium unibody macbook (model 5,1) with 2GB of ram is there?

 

Note: I tried it just crashes. It seems to check the specs and then crash with no error message.

 

The 2011 verson worked just fine.

Try upgrading your RAM. I have a 2008 running 2012 with 8GB of RAM. It's easy as taking the back off and inserting new sticks (cheap too). Haven't had any issues so far. If you have lion, don't forget to run appropriate updates/patches for AutoCAD.

Funny you should mention that. I just bought an 8GB RAM upgrade and it just came in today we'll see how it runs once I install it.
