    Diablo 3 works, it isn't as smooth as other machines. I played for a bit to check, it is playable.

    Only playable on the lowest settings. And i mean all of them! Same for the resolution. Set max fps to 30 and it will be somewhat playable for a casual diablo gamer ;)

    I played some D3 on my old 2011 13" MacBook Pro, it ran okay with most settings on low @ native resolution of 1280x800, so set the resolution to that or close to it, performance of the machine isn't too far off from the performance of the new MacBook (except for the drive, HDD vs SSD, so yeah)

    I do have to add that I have installed the El Capitan GM on my 1.1 and the fps went higher... not by much, but its more playable. now I get between 30 to 40 fps at 800 resolution.

    I don't know if this was because of the patch or because of Metal on El Capitan, but I enjoy it more for when I'm away from my gaming rig.
