    2011 13 Inch MacBook Pro Questions

    Hey everyone so I just recently purchased a MBP and was wondering if my laptop has a chance of running D3 smoothly. Also if you pre-purchase the game can you download both mac client and pc client? The reason being I want to pre-purchase but am not sure if my current laptop can handle D3. I don't want to to get stuck with a game I can't use if I wind up getting another laptop, most likely a PC. Anyway below are my specs for my laptop. Any insight would be helpful. Also any advice on a laptop suitable for gaming under $1000 would be nice.

    The processor is fine, the integrated graphics are where you are going to run into problems. Medium settings at a resolution under 1080p should be fine.

    As far as pre-purchase, their were links provided on the front page to all of the download clients. On the list are the US-Retail versions, bot Mac and Windows download links are available.
