    Any of y'all running Google Earth? How does it run? Does the lack of a dedicated video card make any difference compared to other models?

    It actually runs faster on my MB than it does my PMG5 with 256MBVRAM :confused:

    So that means the integrated graphics aren't an issue?

    Cool!

    Maybe it's a problem with the current beta version?

    For me Google Earth 3 wouldn't run on my 400 Mhz Pismo with it's 8MB VRAM,
    but Google Earth 4 (beta) runs pretty well, relatively speaking...

    On my MacBook, it takes 24 hours for the Earth on Google to complete one full rotation, showing just how incredible my MacBook performs in order to achieve such precision.
