Hello all, I'm having a tough time making the choice between the new 13" MacBook Air and the new 13" base-level MacBook Pro. I'm in school and not only want the portability of the Air, but I just love the aesthetic design. It's not like the Pro is huge and not an option, I am just much more attracted to the Air, as I believe everyone naturally is. Either machine will easily exceed all of my school and personal needs by a mile, expect in the category of gaming. I used to play a fair amount of PC games around six years ago, and have missed it ever since. I'm not into the newer games like Diablo III and Starcraft. I intend on playing simple, older games like Counter-Strike Source, Day of Defeat, and other similar titles. I have been told my many that the new Pro can easily handle these games, but the Air may have trouble. Both graphics cards are the same. The Pro's memory is 500GB hard drive, while the Air has 128GB SSD. I believe the 128GB SSD is much more than enough for my intentions, someone please correct me if this is a much smaller storage than I believe it to be. Both the Pro and Air have 4GB of RAM, which I've been told is excellent. The problem in my dilemma comes down to the processors. Both are the new Ivy Bridge, but the Air's speed is 1.8, while the Pro has a 2.5, which is very impressive. I've read that Counter-Strike's minimum is 1.2, with 2.2 reccomended. I've also read that processor speed isn't as signifigant if other components such as RAM are large. On top of this, these processors apparently can also "turbo", with the Pro's around 3.3 and the Air close behind. My question simply is: Can the MacBook Air 2012 effectively run games like Counter-Strike Source without problems, or will I absolutely need the Pro? I understand the device will get hot, the fans may get loud, but it will not cause any damage that will become noticeable or need repair, atleast within four years. Would the Air need to constantly "turbo" while playing games? I also understand that it is best if I install Windows and boot that when I wish to play a game, as I've been told that it is not only more effective for games, but easier on the system. I apologize if this belongs in the Gaming thread. It seems like the more knowledgeable users frequent this thread more often.
