I don't know much about how speedy these new CPUs and the HD3000 are.
Civ V will run on any current Mac, but since the Macbook Airs are not meant for serious number crunching it will bog down much faster than a more powerful machine.
If you are talking about Civilization V, it will run, but you must install it.
So wait, does anyone have actual personal experience with this? I would like to know so that I could take advantage of the $17 Steam price this weekend.
This guy had it, knew I had seen it somewhere. Sorry for res'ing topic.
Yes, it runs pretty well. If the fps are not enough for you it is possible to play in 2D view which is very, very light. Also I find the map more easy to read.
ps. imho it's the best civ ever, played them all.
is steam "buy once, install on multiple owned computers" like mac app store?
Yea you can install it on different computers, though you can only access those games on those computers with the same steam account.
Yes, that is how steam works
EDIT: Too slow
I just tried it yesterday on my 13" i7 MBA. I loaded an old Civ 5 game (through Steam) and found the performance to be very similar to what it was like on the 2010 13" MBA. You can obviously change the overall game performance quite substantially based on whether you're just using your MBA's screen or an ACD, as well as the video option settings in the game. But...running it through my ACD at 1680x1050 resolution worked decently enough at around 200-300 turns.
