    Anyone installed any games on the MBA Rev.B and find it playable without experiencing intolerable lagging ?

    It'd be nice to know what you like to play first.

    You can play it in DOS if you really wanted to.

    By "runs great," what kind of FPS are you seeing in different situations?

    ie: in PvP; large, crowded cities; questing outside in Northrend; in 10- and 25-man raids (if you have experience with either)?

    I'm currently on a late 2007 MBP and have been pining over a new Rev. B MBA with the latest changes. WoW is the only game I really play on my MBP so I'm very curious as to whether or not an MBA can handle it well enough to ditch the MBP.

    I hear the Mac port of COD4 sucks, you are better off installing XP and running it under windows.

    Counter-Strike Source should be playable on a Rev B id imagine if you want a multiplayer game

    From where I linked on to the end it is mainly about the Rev B.

    Thanks. I didn't see probably because I set my forum to display the latest posts first. :)

    I posted this in the other thread but I've installed and played the following games at native resolution via boot camp on low settings and they play smoothly.

    Red Alert 3
    Battlefield 2
    Team Fortress 2

    Hope this helps.
