    How well would this MBA (http://store.apple.com/us/product/FC505LL/A) run flash/shockwave games?

    It has 2GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics, and the 1.4 GHz C2D. Games like stick arena, or MMORPG's like Sherwood (maidmarian.com if you want to check it out) and maybe other 3D flash games. How well would this MBA run them?

    I just tested those games for you, Stick Arena Dimensions plays at full speed, absolutely no issues. Sherwood played incredibly badly at about 20 FPS.

    Incase you're wondering about other flash uses, Youtube and Vimeo are perfectly happy playing at 1080p :)

    Wow, thank you for testing out the games (and video playback as well)! :)
    Might there be any way to make Sherwood run better? (it certainly isnt a dealbreaker if there isnt, though, i think thats the nature of those games)

    It's probably badly coded, I doubt there's a fix :/

    Probably. Their other games run like that as well. It's certainly not a dealbreaker though. Thanks for testing!
