    Hello,
    Since I couldn't find any scores on both Vista and XP I did the test myself on my late unibody MBP.



    Vista 64bits: 5751 pts
    XP 32bits: 6004 pts

    So I"m happy to install and keep XP again instead of Vista ;) XP recognizes only 2.97 GB ram out of the 4 GB installed but still I prefer using XP.

    Not me, The extra 2 gigs of ram are more important to me then 250+ of a 3D mark score.
    It all depends what you want to do with it.
    For me, using Visual Studio 08, Photoshop, AutoCAD, I'll take the more robust OS.
    Vista gets a bad rap but it is an excellent OS in my opinion.

    And what does the "06" in the test indicate? The year 2006? No wonder XP shows a better score.


    When I need XP, I have good old VM Ware Fusion and it works great.
