    Greetings,

    In light of the upcoming release of Diablo 3, on May 15, I've created a thread for people to talk about how they can get the most oomph out of their Macbook Airs graphics processor. Apple provided us with a gift, the most beautiful laptop on the planet. This gift did not come without a cost however; the cost of which being the Macbook Air's lightweight GPU.

    Theories on boosting performance (updated May 12, 2:48 pm):
    • Lowering resolution in-game, or in 'windowed mode'
    • Applying a light overclock to your system. [unconfirmed]
    • Close all background Apps.
    • Keep your environment cool.
    • Apply the lowest texture settings in-game.



    I hope we can come up with a small list of helpful improvements so that Macintosh gamers can enjoy their Diablo experience in a more rich manner.

    I like your style. :cool:

    Here's some obvious suggestions:

    - Have at least 4gb of ram.
    - Quit all open apps.
    - Set all graphics to the lowest possible.
    - Keep the air cool.

    I have an 11" core 2 duo air and it's amazing how this little computer can play Diablo 3. :D

    I did read the thread but learned little.

    Thanks bro. I added your suggestions to the OP.
