    I'm debating about getting a new Air (thunderbolt), and I'm wondering what performance on the new model. I know it's not a high end game machine, and I've heard no negative comments on performance on the 13" MBP that came out (using the same Intel HD 3000 Graphics--nothing STELAR, but nothing saying it's not playable), but I'm wondering how the slower CPU and the SSD wrangle out frame rates. Anyone with a new Air have any comments? I'm crossing my fingers for consistent 25-30 fps.

    Setting my MacBook Pro 15" to use only the Intel HD 3000 gives me 30-45 fps consistently using medium settings at native resolution. You will likely get similar results.
