    Looking to see how the i5 Macbook air does with some light gaming such as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for instance? Nothing to crazy but something to kill maybe like 30-60 minutes on?

    I had no problems with my MBA when playing some games. It should be no problem as long as you play no heavy graphic intensive games.

    On regular basis I play Minecraft, Company of Heores, Civ 5, Civ 3 and Age of Empires 3. The fan goes crazy but the games run without a problem.

    Oh sweet it can run civ 5? On what graphic settings can the air run it in? I might be interested in buying that one.
