    I want at least 60fps on normal render distance.

    Nope your looking at more like 35 to 40 fps.

    Thats the same as the HD 3000 in my current 13" MacBook Pro I think. With optifine however, i get 80 fps.

    I have been getting around 80-90FPS with Render distance normal, Fancy, and Vsync off.

    Optifine hardly makes a difference ~5FPS

    Quoted from the thread link posted below:
    Minecraft - (OS X) 30-60fps on all possible graphics settings set to max, 1440x900​

    You may want to read around first before posting, this creates less duplications of threads :)

    Anyways, my brother gets a solid 60-100 fps on normal settings.

    I'm not trying to criticize, but is it necessary or 'better' to have more than 25-30? That is fluent enough.

    Again, just curiosity.. Don't get me wrong.

    I personally definitely can feel the difference, at 30fps things are a lot more slow feeling (not bad, just feel slower) and at 60 everything feels really smooth and silky.

    It's hard to explain unless you play something at both.

    To me, it's better. If your video card can do 30fps and NEVER dip below under any circumstance, this would be fine too; however, if your card can only do 30fps, good luck never dipping lower.

    Has anyone done any tests on the 11" at native res? Given the lower resolution of the 11", I would think it would be even a little faster.

    I also find it hard to believe that optifine only boosts FPS by ~5. On my desktop it adds about 50% (from 60 -> 90+).
