I'll be waiting for the MacBook ones. I almost forgot about GLView.

Seems to be only 5-9% quicker in the tests than my mid-2007 2.4GHz MBP with 8600M GT 256MB.

Going by anything, GPU's have been doubling more than every 18 months in speed.

Interesting to see just how much faster desktop graphics cards are compared to these. The 8800GT is twice as fast as the fastest card here.

Never really realised the difference having never used a laptop before.

Yes, that is true.

The iMac even gets a laptop GPU. When you think you are buying a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS, your actually buying the laptop, not the desktop version that's all packaged into one die.
