Just got my mini and I LOVE IT! It replaces the 17"C2D MBP that I sold in March, 2010 to pay for a car repair. I've been iPad only the past 2 years! I ordered my dad the base mini, which I will be setting up for him in a few minutes. Anywho, here are some brief benchmarks I did of Halo UB: 1280x720 all HIGH, Lens Flare High, NO AA Average frame rate=167.79fps 1920x1080 all HIGH, Lens Flare High, NO AA Average frame rate=96.87fps 1920x1080 all HIGH, Lens Flare High, 4x AA 2500MHz, 4096MB Total Time=88.19s Average frame rate=53.29fps Below 5fps= 1% (time) 0% (frames) (1.515s spent in 4 frames) Below 10fps= 1% (time) 0% (frames) Below 15fps= 6% (time) 1% (frames) Below 20fps= 11% (time) 2% (frames) Below 25fps= 11% (time) 3% (frames) Below 30fps= 19% (time) 6% (frames) Below 40fps= 37% (time) 18% (frames) Below 50fps= 50% (time) 28% (frames) Below 60fps= 62% (time) 41% (frames) ###Sound Options### Hardware Acceleration= No Sound Quality= High Environmental Sound= No Sound Variety= High ###Video Options### Resolution= 1920 x 1080 Refresh rate= 0 Hz Framerate throttle= No Vsync Specular= Yes Shadows= Yes Decals= Yes Texture Quality= High Lightroom 3 runs smooth as butter, Halo 2 under windows 7 runs great (30-50fps) with every setting maxed, 4xAA 1920x1080.
