Does Macbook air play games?
The Macbook Air features a 9400mGT, so you can play light titles like Sims 3 and WoW on it, but not much more. If you buy real discs, then yes, you’ll need an optical drive. If you can find pirated OSX versions, probably not. Sucks that things are sometimes easier for the pirates, but they are. Thankfully, Newegg has a $50 Lucky Goldstar DVD writer, and it will operate fine under OSX.
