From the thunderous response, it doesn't mean that nobody else is using one... only that people don't necessarily read this forum unless they have a problem.

That said, the "minimal system specs" Turbine posted for the Mac Client are:
These were based on systems Turbine had in house used for testing ... they did not compare different models.
Processor: Processor: 2.0 GHz Intel Core i5
Video: Intel HD Graphics 3000 or better
OS: OSX 10.7.5
Memory: 2 GB
Processor: 2.0 GHz Intel Core i7
Video: NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 650M or better
OS: OSX 10.7.5
Memory: 4 GB
Your 1.8 GHZ i5 is close enough to 2.0 Ghz i5 so, performance should not be an issue.
The SSD is a big win compared to a SATA drive. (The installed Mac Client takes roughly 20GB).
The Intel 4000 is the later version of the 3000.
And the 4GB of RAM is really the minimum needed.
In my opinion&the only issue would be if that Airbook has a Retina Display.
The Retina display is NOT supported at native resolutions.
It's not that it doesn't work, it does, and it is gorgeous --- you just can't read any text!!! No font available at the native
resolution. I believe you can lower the resolution and get readable text, but I haven't tried it.
I currently run on a 27 inch iMac:
27 inch iMac Intel (mid 2010)
Processor: 2.93 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory: 8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 5750 1024 MB
Display: 27-inch (2560 x 1440)
Software: Mac OS X Mountain Lion OS X 10.8.3
Keep in mind -- the Mac Client runs well and has a gorgeous display -- just don't crank up the display settings to Ultra High.
The Mac and PC clients both still have memory leaks. Ultra High graphics settings do impact that... just run with the defaults.
The "select optimum" button does not work.
That memory leak issue tends to limit sessions to about 45 minutes in Rohan, but it is an issue related to the Awesomium display client used for all NPC dialogs, Quest dialogs, the store, etc.
