Apple Convinced Me to Install Vista

I saw the new Mac vs. PC guy ad misprint which stated the fastest Vista laptop tested this year was the MacBook Pro, so I had to give it a shot.

The fastest Windows Vista notebook we’ve tested this year (through 10/25/07) is a Mac. Try that again: The fastest Windows Vista notebook we’ve tested this year — or for that matter, ever — is a Mac. Not a Dell, not a Toshiba, not even an Alienware. PC World

I first did the test as a virtual machine, but the graphics score was pretty low (I think a 1.9). I then did the same test running it directly on BootCamp" and got a 5.1. The lowest scored item was memory. It does haves 4 gigs of RAM, but on 32 bit only ~ 3 gigs are recognized. If 64 bit drivers are released, I might give it another shot. Still, 5.1 is not too bad, especially on a Mac. :)
