Could you please not generalize the US military like that? As a veteran myself its quite offensive. Believe me when I tell you that very few people even fly those drones and if you want to point a finger of blame point to yourself for electing those in charge who carry out such actions.
Although there is some truth to this, it is not entirely true. For example, Portal 2 and Starcraft 2 run well on my MBA. Portal 2 on full res with high textures and SC2 on medium with 30 FPS most of the time. Non dedicated graphics are slightly more powerful than they often get credit for.
