Anyone tried it? Reading some previous threads it sounds like Black Ops doesn't work so well, so I'm guessing MW3 is even more problematic?

Searched there, don't see anything about MW3 and the Air. However there has been talk in this forum in the past on how the Air performs will COD games.

I've got a demo video of MW3 running on a Macbook Air 13" (2011 - base model) on my channel (http://www.youtube.com/theunits3).

Personally I'd recommend just paying the $200 for one of the Black Friday Xbox deals for all my gaming. That's how I play.. it's nicer on a large TV than a small computer IMO. It is also much cheaper than investing $1,000+ in a decent gaming computer.

Even Steve Jobs said Microsoft had a nice product with the Xbox. I think it is the only good thing they ever made, lol.

And neither of the above links posted have the information you are looking for.

ThrottleStop helps remove the lag on the 2011. Give it a shot again with that Samaurai.

I built a system for my friend for $360 that can max MW3 :) I called it the 360 Project, the affordable gaming PC.

It had a Phenom II 955 Quadcore and a HD6870 + 4GB RAM :)

It is a misconception that you need to spend $1000 on a gaming PC, sure if you want the best and nice hardware it'll cost more... but seriously you can make a great budget PC. I made a system for a client that can max BF3 for $580
