I am looking at the tech-specs of the latest MacBook Pro 13' entry model. CPU: 2.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 Memory: 4GB Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4000 It looks like a great little machine with nice specs that I think will be adequate for my needs. I think I will buy it! But the Intel HD Graphics have me worried! So I am asking: How is the performance of Intel HD Graphics 4000 (or similar from the previous MacBook Pro 13' model) on Mac OS X in the following scenarios: Basic gaming: Not the latest and greatest games but games like: Portal 2 (and the rest of the Half-Life 2 series), definitely not the most graphic-intensive game but it sure looks pretty! Doom 3 (a bit old now but still nice graphics, and frankly I don't play the latest 3D games anymore) Relative light games that require 3D acceleration like: Limbo, Braid, Tales of Monkey Island. 3D content creation programs like Blender 3D. Is the UI responsive with Intel HD Graphics 4000? Or is it impossible to work? I am not a heavy user of Blender 3D but I would like my new machine to have nice performance with my favorite 3D content creation suite. GPU Acceleration in Web-Browsers like Firefox? How does WebGL works? How fast is the <canvas> acceleration: Firefox 4: hardware acceleration, click the "Hardware Acceleration Stress Test" link You could point to benchmark data. But I would really appreciate if you could inform me out of your personal experience how well does a modern MacBook Pro 13' with Intel HD Graphics 4000 (or similar) performs under the scenarios I mentioned. Is it a good machine for this kind of usage? Or should I get something with NVIDIA graphics? Also if you take the Canvas Hardware Acceleration Stress Test with your browser (Safari, Firefox, Chrome or all if possible) could you please tell me how many FPS do you get with your Intel HD Graphics 4000 powered machine? Thank you in advance.
