    Is that in OS X or Windows? Is that your video?

    Great video! I just posted it on my site, actually.
    I would not have expected that playing CoD 4 on a 2GB MacBook Air would have been so smooth!

    Ahh, was just wondering if you had had Windows so you could have ran GPU-Z to see is the GPU underclocked. Nice video though ;)

    Samurai thanks a TON for posting this - you seem to be the only one on the entire Internet that has put out anything of substance on the new 13" - keep them coming!

    I didn't hear any dialect, which is surprising considering he comes from Glasgow. He does retain some accent though, which is nice. Anyways..

    Cheers for the video, I'm really amazed by how smooth that looked. Am dying now to see if that's possible on the 11 incher :D

    Heat

    I am wondering if it gets hot like the old revs? From user comments the 11.6 incher seems not to have this problem but as we all know the 13.3 air uses a 17 watt C2D. So does it get hot if you push it and are the fans silent? Thanks for the great vids btw!

    +1 on heat issues. Can you update us on heat issues? Usually they heat up with Skype along with Skype video and with Youtube videos. Can you also comment on the new screen resolution and quality.

    Seems like the OP is doing something else this weekend other than answering all of our questions.

    How rude.

    What about his sacred duty to load us up with info?

    I've never seen COD4 attempted on a Rev B Air. How much of the smooth playback is driven by the new Air's enhanced graphics chip and faster flash memory?

    The new Air basically has the same 2GB Ram and processor as the Rev B, so wondering if the Rev B could play COD4?

    Darn I could've recorded it. :( I ran SC2 at native res all medium and its playable. I also tried out Unity's Bootcamp demo and it works alright with all the shaders turned on at the Fantastic setting. Frame rate goes up to 40fps on Good Settings.

    I will buy the 11" with 1.6ghz 4GB. Its good enough to be a simple gaming machine, most games released on 2008 prior.

    Overall the comments I heard from the store were, astonished, amazed about the slimness, and others were dissatisfied about the high price. Even heard one said that got to be the most expensive netbook. I also saw a couple of businessmen(on a saturday?) purchased 3 MBAs. I guess thats Apple's target audience.
