Hello, just came back to my home country for summer break and I am currently stuck with my mac book pro.

My mac book pro is using snow leopard 10.6.8, it has 2 graphic cards:
AMD Radeon HD 6490M
Intel HD Graphics 3000

I read from http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/4903180328 that snow leopard with 10.6.8 and Intel HD Graphics 3000 needs to update to Lion. But if i am using my AMD graphic card to play, do i still have the issue?

You should be fine since the computer will automatically switch to the Radeon HD graphics card when the game is in use.

I believe the issue is for those who use the MacBook Pro 13" 2010 model. It only has the Intel HD Graphics 3000 no discrete graphics card to switch to.

Correct. If you do notice graphical issues, you can force your Mac to use the AMD GPU.

This is small step for me, but big step for humanity. Or something like that...
So if i download mountain lion for the mac 13 2010 model, it should run the game better?
