    I know I already have the answer to this question, but I'm still hopeful...

    I have the Macbook Air 11" Ultimate, with a 1.6 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4gb ram, etc.

    Portal 2 is probably a stretch, but I've seen other games along with it that require a 2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo or greater. Such as Strong Bad's blah blah blah on Steam - an adventure game.

    Is there some chance that through the magic of the Macbook Air I can get games like these to run? I know the answer is No, because I don't meet that requirement. So why am I posting this question? Because I've read about games running on the MBA 11" that are most likely more intensive, so I thought I'd ask.;)

    If I can play games like this, how far can I push it safely? How can I interpret these requirements for the MBA 11"? (I know it's not a gaming computer, that's not why I bought it, but since I have it I thought I would ask. I haven't touched my PC in weeks, and I'm itching to play something new-ish.)

    Due to it's gpu, I would guess that you could run it at its lowest resolution. Loading times shouldn't bother the processor too much because of its ssd.
