    dunno - I saw a Mac Pro score a 5.7, though, and they said that was "extremely respectable" so who knows. A 10, maybe? Obviously a computer two years down the road should be able to score higher than a Mac Pro today...right?

    The most powerful computers nowadays can achieve a maximum score of 5.9, as scores above 6 have not been defined yet. You can read more of it on this link .

    Im guessing the intergrated graphics brought down this score?

    What are the scores for hard drive , ram etc?

    The highest score possible right now in any category is a 5.9. Theoretically, the score is between 0 and 6.0, although it will be adjusted/augmented via Windows Update in the future.

    The only computer I have seen to score a 5.9 overall (ie. in all categories) was a dual processor (two 3.0GHz cores on each CPU) QuadFX machine with 4GB of memory, RAID 0 Raptors, and dual Geforce 8800GTX graphics cards. It was a prototype/demo machine from AMD.

    If you are achieving a 4.0 or above, you have a very fast machine. A 5.0+ means you're at the top-end of what's available today. 5.9 would mean you're beyond what's expected to be even available to regular users today.

    Your "overall" score is limited to the slowest component in your system. In the case of the MacBook, you'll be limited by the integrated graphics chip, which still should achieve a respectable 3.1 or so. Not bad at all for integrated graphics, which is more than enough to run Aero very cleanly and perfectly fine for anything except high-end gaming.

    I believe my CD MacBook got a 1. :eek:

    The processor was a 5 (I believe, I'm going off of memory here), but the RAM and integrated graphics brought my score down. Hopefully another 512 MB RAM will do the trick.

    iMac 24" 2gig ram 256mb vram : 4.7

    4.7 is the rating for the ram.
    everthing else is 5+

    The MBP scoring 4.8 is surprising though. I thought the iMac & MBP have the same components except for the video card and hard disk.

    I get a 4.0 on my MBP CD 2ghz I got 1.5gig of ram but the thing that brings it down is the graphics which says it is at a 4.0. I am using now the latest ATI drivers for Vista.

    Maybe there should be a page on the wiki for performance scores?
    Its quite an easy way to compare computers and see if a new mac will run the games you want.
