    Looks like the HD3000 barely satisfies minimum graphics requirement.

    The HD3000 is (roughly) equivalent to a GeForce 320m. Very slightly inferior.

    It should be fine to run Diablo. The processor is more than good enough.

    I saw the list with the compatible graphics cards and Intel HD 3000 was there with a level of details "low".

    I also read that Diablo 3 should be similar to Starcraft 2 in terms of graphics.

    So the graphics seem good. I know the i5/i7 processors will do well, but what about the c2d 2010 airs. Think those will make the cut?

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a beta invite to see if my 2011 Air will run it. I hardly play WoW or Starcraft 2 yet somehow manage to get into early rounds of every beta since Burning Crusade.

    Since the requirements state a Core 2 Duo and the 320m is superior to the HD 3000 it will run fine.

    Well, blizzard doesn't make console versions of its games ;-)

    Good to see that my 8600m mbp from 2008 will also be able to run it on low settings. And it looks like I can expect max settings at 2560x1440 on my Mac Pro - like in sc2.

    As for the mba, blizzard games love ram, so getting at least 4gb could definitely help.
