    Hey guys!

    I'll be getting my 2011 MBA 13" soon. I'm interested to know what games would run smoothly on it? :) I'm also thinking of using Bootcamp or Parallels to run Windows games so feel free to suggest any game you know.

    Thanks! :)

    Well, this reply will be a bit out of topic. But you should run Windows using Bootcamp rather than in a VM program. MBAs have very limited hardware resources, especially compared to MBPs. So running games in Bootcamp would be better, as your hardware resources will be used fully by Windows. Also, don't expect to run highly-intensive games smoothly. :)

    Someone else might point you to the right games that you could play smoothly on a MBA. :)

    rFactor runs well with Windows 7 on a MacBook Air 11.6". It should be breeze with your Mac. rFactor is a car simulator. Use a gamepad or a Logitech wheel and pedals.

    Call of Duty runs well on the 2011 MBA. Don't miss Angry Birds too! :rolleyes:
