    Considering getting the new MBA. I'm guessing this will be perfect for just using the internet, but I wanted to know if you guys this think will run WoW even at worst settings?

    I know very little when it comes to graphics cards, but wanted to know if the 13" would run it decently?

    Normally I would suggest the 2010 model and it can run WoW great, but some benchmarks show the 2011 being just as good too.

    Thanks for your reply. Was there a reason to believe the 2011 model would be worse at running it if the 2010 model could get by?

    Edit: Purchased anyways, but I would still like to hear your thoughts.

    A lot of people think the HD3000 is bad. Actually it can't compete with modern cards but it is faster than the previously used 320M.

    Don't worry, it'll run WoW no worse than the prev-gen version.

    #6 actually said it ran it better! Actually 4fps better.

    So does that mean it should play League of Legends OK? I know it's comparative to World of Warcraft, but I can't seem to find anyone posting benchmarks of the old or new MBA playing League of Legends, the only game I play.
