Are my SR MBP 3DMark06 scores about right?

    Hey folks, I know that 3DMark06 is not everyone's favorite benchmarking tool for comparison, but I think it will give me a good idea of whether or not my laptop's working right or not.

    I score 2800 or so with my new 15" SR MBP (2.2 GHZ) is this about right? I saw some comparison charts saying it should be more like 3300. Just want to make sure my SR MBP ain't broken :)

    Are you running it at 1280*1024?
    Thats the benchmarking resolution, which the is outside of the ability of the mbp monitor. Any other resolution is NOT comparable. You'll have to plug in an external screen. (or use some method of extending the screen past the monitor)
    Its annoying when benchmarkers who have no idea run 3dmark at some low stock resolution. Makes the scores rather useless.
