I have the i5 2012 13" with 4gb ram. I run Diablo 3 on med-high settings with light lag only occurring during very busy moments in the game. Pretty damn good for an ultrabook with integrated graphics.

I've had it for a week...I'm returning it and upgrading to the i7 with 8GB ram. Should improve graphics even more from what I understand.


Good luck and enjoy.

Am I right about the 2012 8GB RAM model having 512mb of graphics memory vs the 384mb in my current one?
...
I have the same machine and can confirm 512MB Graphics.
