    How well does the 2011 13" MacBook Air handle Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead 2 and Portal 2? What settings and resolution do you guys play on for the best results?

    Tf2 1280x800 medium IMO. At best.

    I'm sure someone will post a clip of higher settings but if it's not a full game it's pointless!

    A full game as in maximum settings? If so then the MacBook Air simply isn't a gaming computer. People shouldn't treat it like one.

    He meant a full server.

    Ohhh... I get it now. lol. I suppose what "full" means. Some serves have 16 as the maximum number of players and some have 32. Obviously the 32 is going to be more taxing than the 16. Given the specs, I probably would stay away from servers with more than 24 people.

    I've got L4D2 set up at 1440x900, High textures, low everything else, no AA. The high textures stops the game looking terrible (so you're simply sacrificing things like shadows and advanced lighting), but the overall experience is smooth.
