    I want to run CS: GO on my macbook air. I have the 2015 edition and it is brand new. Will it hold up? Also will I be able to disable the track pad when I play?

    For game itself it would be no problem.

    For track pad, I guess you can't because I cannot disable trackpad when gaming unless disabling it in device manager.

    Oh, if you play it under Mac, then you would probably have no way to disable it.

    Check settings under the game, not under System Preferences. If you cannot disable trackpad then try using a PS4 controller (or PS3? Not sure of the games age) in the USB port and then decide.

    Yes on low but the fans will be screaming and the top of the keyboard will be very hot.

    Also, why would you want to disable the trackpad. Just use a mouse. CSGO is a FPS.

    I forgot this:
    In accessibility setting, you can disable trackpad when external mouse is inserted.
