    on live changed less and they failed so what hope does this have at that price.

    Would prefer eGPU. Still, better this exists than not.

    You know what is mean. Can you play Fallout 4, Battlefield 1, or Witcher in MacOS? No. Bootcamp? You need to keep switching OS. For this service, you just need a computer with good wifi signal.

    Given the sheer volume of back-and-forth data here, it wouldn't shock me if only plugged in ethernet cable made it viable... and given Witcher 3 would cost $500 to finish, at that point an eGPU is more sensible.

    What's wrong with switching to boot camp?

    Taking time basically and hardware performance is not good enough to run those kind of games. With this service you can play fallout 4 or Witcher 3 on MacBook air.

    These prices are insane....but I have a gaming desktop and would only use this to allow me to go to LAN parties with my MacBook Pro 13" and not have to bring my desktop along....it may be something I actually use.
