    So I have the 13" MacBook Pro from late 2011 and I was wondering if it would run Counter Strike: Global Offensive smoothly with good resolution? If not which generation of Counter Strike do you think would work the best on my computer? Maybe CS:S? Thanks

    I have no idea how demanding that game is, but you'd be running it on a crappy integrated graphics card, so I wouldn't expect much.

    Just dont run graphic intensive games.
    Anything GPU demanding would look crap on HD3000.

    Call of Duty 4 runs perfectly on max graphics for me so I'm assuming source would work though

    You can run on low to medium (I heard it lags on medium as well).
    CS:S cant run on high for HD4000 either so.

    Here you go:

    He is running on 1366x768 resolution (MBP's resolution is 1280x800) with a marginally slower CPU than the 2011 MBP has. Looks absolutely decent to me. If that guy can get 60fps out of his laptop, I don's see why your MBP won't.

    CSS runs fine on practically anything. It is reeeaaalllyy old.
    GO might be a different beast. I would guess though that on medium or maybe min-medium it should work too. No AA or any fancy stuff but enough for gaming.
