    I want a MBA, and I'm low on $$$. What I need is to run Half life 1, and HL2 *all low is fine*, Half life 1 shouldn't be a problem. I do a lot of Microsoft Office/iWork stuff, Parallels is a must, and has to have a decent portable way to go on the web.

    You'll need Rev. B to do any 3D gaming. The Rev. A may be able to handle low rez games, but it will probably get very hot/overheat.

    You could get a Macbook Unibody, it'll have the nVidia and be cheaper than a MBA rev. B

    I wouldn't get an MBA to play lots of games. Get a MacBook or just play them on the MBP in your sig.

    get the rev.B whenever possible
    9400M is far better than the rev.A intel integrated display even it is underclocked

    I love my Rev A, but I don't try to make it do anything more than Internet, email and the occasional (small) Photoshop project.
