Has anyone tried playing games on a recent 12 inch MacBook, specifically blizzard titles like Starcraft 2 or heroes of the storm? I don’t play much, and have a Mac mini I use for that (I’m obvious not a serious gamer I use a Mac mini, haha), but I wouldn’t mind being able to play on the go occasionally. It isn’t a big enough reason to push me to the pro (I am a student who will be flying often and mobility is the biggest factor for me), but was interested in hearing your experiences. Thanks!

Thanks for letting me know! It really seems like a great computer. I’m getting more swayed in that direction!
