Can my new 13" MBA i7 play this even though it has integrated graphics? I believe the ones they reference is the 9400 and lower where the HD3000 is 20% faster than the 9600.

I think the HD3000 is better than the nvidia 9400, but lags behind the newer nvidia integrated gpu, the 320m, unless the game is written to take advantage of the intel (ie, newer games).

After hearing all the wailing and lamentations on this forum about the HD3000, I initially hesitated. But coming from a 2008 aluminum macbook with the 9400, I don't have a single regret about the 2011 air.

I saw geek bench results showing hd3000 20% better than 9600, but I still don't know if I should get kotor cause it can run it.

I bought KOTOR, it runs just fine on medium settings, max resolution (1440x900). Buy it if you want it; it was my first purchase from the $100 B2S card :D
