    macrumors newbie

    HI, I'm still waiting for my MBA 2012. Its been shipped and probably will get it in two days. This is my first macbook and I really have little knowledge about macbook. These are my questions.

    1. Do I need to calibrate my MBA once I get it?

    2. Do games such as Diablo 3, WOW etc run on MAC OS X or Windows(bootcamp/parallels).

    3. What are the things that I should do once I get my macs(important things)?


    -edited questions-

    4. about external hdd, i have the normal one, can it operate on MAC. my friend said something about partitioning, so quite not sure about it. So I can use the normal external HDD without buying the specialize for Mac?

    1. Like the battery? If so then no.

    2. I do not play games so do not know.

    3. Click to Flash.

    - Yeah the 2012 MBA can run most games, i can easily run COD on my one (you will want to run in bootcamp for windows games)

    - Essential apps: VLC

    - Essential kit: External HDD

    Hope this helps

    You don't need to calibrate the battery. Mine came 100% charged.

    Wow I'm feeling helpful today.

    Yes WoW and Diablo 3 runs on Mac OSX. :D

    Why would this be necessary? My 2012 shipped without flash installed... I was under the impression that all macs no longer have flash installed from the factory...
