I have, which model do you own? On my MBA, Killing Floor ran smooth-ish. A couple graphic intensive maps really overloaded it, with rain/fire or whenever firebugs or spam demos, my framerates dropped pretty significantly. Don't expect to play it at normal settings, all my graphics settings were around medium to low and I had to lessen the resolution. You'll have to play around with the settings to see where you'll be comfortable playing at.

I had a 13" i5 @ 1.7GHz and 4GB Ram (sig is old and needs updating)

So the 2011 model?
The 2012 will likely do much better with the hd4000.

also have a 2011 13 air

- Killing floor runs at max res no lag, high graphics settings too.
- L4D2 and TF2 run at max res with slightly lower graphics options also no lag

I have a 2012 MBA i7/8 .. so I might see slightly better performance. tried L4D2 today and it worked fine on default settings
