    I have the base 2011 13.3" Air (4GB RAM, 128GB HD) and my wife is always using it to play her Facebook games. It seems like everytime I want it, she's either using it or it's on the charger because the flash games sucked the battery dry.

    I'm thinking of getting her the base 11.6" from eBay if I can find a bargain, but was concerned that the 2GB RAM, slower processor, and the smaller video memory might be an issue with the Facebook games. I know that when she's using my 13.3" the fan is running on high and it seems to be taxing the system.

    Any input on how the 11.6" with the 1.6GHZ i5, 2GB RAM, and 256MB video would handle Facebook games would be apreciated.

    Your fans will spin up and it will get hot. Otherwise it should be fine.
