    Would the The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King game be a good gift for a LOTR fan who just got a MBA?

    Would it run well on the MBA? I know the MBA isn't meant for gaming but would this game work ok? The system requirements are:

    * Mac OS X 10.2.6 or later
    * PowerPC G4/G5, 800 MHz (1GHz or faster recommended)
    * 256MB of RAM
    * 2.2 GB free disk space
    * 3D Graphics Acceleration required (ATI Radeon 7500/nVidia GeForce 2 or better, 32MB of VRAM)

    The MacBook Air uses the Intel GMA X3100 graphics processor with 144MB of DDR2 SDRAM shared with main memory. I have The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King game and I have my doubts that it would run very well on the MacBook Air. You would definitely want to play it on a larger external monitor and not on the MacBook Air native 1280x800 screen.

    With that said I do not own a MacBook Air and have not tested The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King game on one. Perhaps someone else can provide some hands-on experience with the two.
