Hey, I'm planning on buying my first ever mac (hopefully this month!) and have a few questions I hope someone may be able to answer. This will be my main computer (replacing a Vaio) and as such I would like the option to play some games now and again. However, I am not a big gamer and appreciate this is far from a gaming machine. I'm under the impression that due to different Windows graphical drivers and occasionally, bad OSX game ports, it is best to run games via Windows and Bootcamp. Is this true for all games? I'm assuming parallels desktop/VMware fusion will run slower than bootcamp. The latter, however, would obviously be more convenient. Someone mentioned to me that a new version of Civilization V had been released. I have enjoyed playing this in the past so have searched the internet for information on its playability on the air. From what I've read it seems to be just about playable. Obviously the new Sandy Bridge processors with increased clock speeds should improve gaming, but is the Intel HD Graphics 3000 going to be much of a step-down from the NVIDIA GeForce 320M? On balance, I'm assuming gaming will be improved as I understand the Intel and NVIDIA performance is somewhat comparable. As this will be my main machine, I just wanted to do some homework and ensure that if I decide to dabble in a bit of gaming down the line, I won't be massively disappointed. Once again, I appreciate this is not a gaming laptop. I have also been considering the 13.3" Vaio SA due to its high pixel density (1600x900-->~138dpi Cf. 128dpi for the 13.3" air at 1440x900) and the reliability of Vaio laptops. However, the quality of the air's screen is otherwise better (e.g. contrast ratio etc.), I like the design of the air, and I'm becoming increasingly fond of the OSX software (as well as looking forward to the arrival of Lion). Any input would be great. Thanks a bunch!
