Me and my 11" MBA vs Diablo 3

13" Sandy Bridge originally, switched to 11" Ivy Bridge (base) when it came out... just Diablo 3, me, my trusty MBA, hundreds of hours of time.. and now I share this ultimate glory with my MBA. Luckily the MBA is so small because they're going to have to bury it with me after these great memories

(Caption: Full solo completion of D3 on Hardcore mode w/just MBA, http://www.diabloprogress.com/hero/r...gamel/23672012 195th such completion so far in the world, daresay first on MBA!)

Wow. Very nice. I am still stuck at acts 3 inferno, really amazing how you manage to complete this solo, hopefully it helps people realise that the MacBook Air is not all that bad at gaming. Well done.

Thanks! A3 Inferno.. you're really close. A4 was much more scary than I expected

Yes I am a big fan of the ivy bridge chip + HD 4000 and this gives a great story to share to prove it's quite usable

Notice that you came from a 13" to 11", I did too. How do you find the change in size. Also do you play D3 connected to a bigger screen or just from the macbook air 11".

I love the 11", have had one before (1.4ghz C2D) and I like it more. It's my only computer. I always use the built in screen

Very nice. The 11" is my main computer too. So amazing that you did this using just the internal screen, really shows how complete the Macbook Air is, even for gaming.

Still stuck at the middle of Act 4 Inferno though, really need to find some new items at the AH (beginning with a new wand).

Nice, what settings do you use (resolution, etc)?
