    You can only know by testing, because each player likes to play in a diferent resolution, it depens if its 1080P or 720P

    I would say the Mini wil do fine with some not so old games. Im playing games from 2005 without any problem and Im on a 2010 Mac Mini with a m300 I believe

    Second Life does great too on the Mini, only getting a little slow at the highest settings with atmospheric shading, water reflections and shadows on all objects. Set up a RAM disk of 2Gb though, as the mobile hard drive is too slow for all the texture swapping.

    I have the 2.5 mini with 8gb ram and a Vertex4 SSD. Mainly play League of Legends, Starcraft, Portal 2, all run very well in 1080p with mid-high settings. Very impressed at how it handles with 256mb vram.:)

    League of Legends is free to play, so go ahead and give it a try! I also believe WoW is now free until lvl 20 if that would help as well.
