    Ok asked the same questions millions of times but gotta ask again and i'm sure I won't get a answer soon so here we go

    Currently have a 2010 Imac with Core I3 and upgraded to 8gig of ram
    Also have an Ipad 2 Jbed

    For Work I got

    Macbook Pro 2009
    Iphone 4

    (I plan to change job soon so i might loose the last 2)

    I wanted to get an MacBook Air but here is my questions

    How good is an intel 3000 for Gaming (I know usually shared memory are bad byt anyway)

    Also this question is for Diablo 3 that we dont know the specs

    2) 4gig of ram, is it enough for Vmware and all that ****

    3) What should I do

    a) Ipad2 and Air
    b) Ipad2 and Imac
    c) Air and Imac.

    Thanks lol

    The new MBA will definitely be worse for gaming. You are better off buying the prior version with Nvidia GPU if you want any graphics performance. Sure, you will find some "tests" that say for an obscure game or two the HD3000 is better, but in the real world it cannot even come close to the Nvidia GPU.

    The intel HD3000 will not help with gaming needs beyond the casual gamer

    You don't know that. Wait until benchmarks are out with current drivers before making a definitive statement about something you can't prove other than pointing to PC/Windows benchmarks.
