Has anybody played EVE Online on any model of the new macbook air and if so how is it? I downloaded the 14 day trial and as soon as I started it up my fan started going the loudest I've ever heard it. I assumed it would run well because it is advertised on Apple's website, but apparently that may not be true. What is your experience?

It ran just fine on my 13"

Gave up on that game though. The learning curve is way too high.

Was the fan loud... what are the specs of your macbook air?

UPDATE: After reading some more posts on different websites and seeing performance, I decided to ditch EVE online. It sounds like it is probably the worst game to run on a macbook air.

Hi,

Just did a search for this as i am buying a MBA this weekend and i totally didnt think about my EVE account. I currently have a now old Sony Vaio and am used to playing EVE on low settings and being the only game i play on a computer (i have an xbox) i was hoping it would play well on the MBA.

Has anyone had a real proper go running EVE on the MBA, if so i would like to hear your feedback.

Cheers,
