Anyone using their MacBook Air on a 1080p display?

    Does the HD 3000 have any hiccups at all driving 1920x1080 resolutions? Not for gaming, but I am concerned about 1080p video on YouTube or other HD content.

    Also, will it have trouble running an older game like Half-Life 2 and Counter-Strike: Source at native 1080p?

    1440x900 to 1920x1080 does seem to be quite a bump up for the integrated little guy.

    I have a 2010 MBA that I use with a 24" Apple Cinema Display (1920x1200) and it's fine.

    2011 model at 1920X1200 without problem here too. Don't worry about the resolution. Unless you want to game at max settings in 1080p, the OS, other applications and HD video playback will be fine.
