    Does anyone know if Portal 2 will work with the remote disc feature of the Air?

    Got plenty of bandwidth to spare otherwise?

    I'm not sure about that, but you could download it on Steam.

    If you are connected to ethernet, maybe.

    I dont know how big portal 2 is, but I use remote disc for SC2 and it was about 7 gb, but installed pretty damn fast. It seemed as fast as it was on my laptop with the drive.

    Why buy optical media for a game made by a company that is 100% focused on one of the best digital distribution platforms out there for games?


    Just install steam and use your key, it'll start downloading.

    You have to be connected to the 'net anyway. After the initial install, it takes you to portal to log-in, register the CD key and then download updates. You do not need the CD to play after install.

    It should load just fine using remote disk...
