    I don't see why not. I currently use an '08 MacBook Pro w/ 2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo and it runs like a charm. The new air's have intel graphics 4000 (minimum is 3000). I would NOT advise the 11" model however. I tried that once and it was unbearable ( hooked it up to my TV so I could stop constantly adjusting the view). An air should do OK, but do yourself a favor and get the 13". If you're really worried about it, a 13" MacBook Pro and 13" MacBook Air COST EXACTLY THE SAME.
