So yeah, basically this. I have a Santa Rosa MBP (2.2 ghz, geforce 8600 128mb,2gb RAM). That is on the verge of kicking the bucket. I built a Rig 2 years ago, and I use it yo play games and 3d cad modeling (solidworks, catia, alias and the like). So my laptop needs are now for portability. I still want to be able to play some games on my laptop, doesn't matter if i lose the eyecandy, i just want steady 30+ FPS on this games. -Team fortress 2 -Diablo 3 -LoL -L4D Maybe down the road i'll get torchlight 2 and borderlands 2. I'll also install some cad programs just to review my big files on the go, and maybe do some last minute corrections on the bus/train/plane/whatever. So , I'm hoping you guys could help me a bit. Can a 2 ghz/8gb RAM MBA handle those games/tasks? Appreciate your help.
