    Hi friends,
    like many of you, i am wowed by the new MBA. Before i purchase, i am wondering if any of you have played Starcraft 2 on it? and what setting do you guys set the detail level to and what models you have.

    Much thanks.

    I've only tried Left 4 Dead 2. It was playable with everything set on low. I didn't mess around too much with the settings. It gave the fan a work out.

    Portal, WoW, X-Plane

    Today I posted Steam Portal, WoW, and X-Plane test results for the 11" and 13" MacBook Air vs two MacBook Pros (13" and 15"):

    Run SC2 on mostly all low at max res on 13" - get a range from 10fps to 45+. It runs surprisingly well, especially against my i7 iMac.

    It will probably perform the same like the 13" MBP in games since they have the same GPU.

    So starcraft 2 should run at Low/medium.

    10 fps? Any idea what's causing it to dip so low?
