MacBook Pro - Windows Experience Index

If you are planning on running Windows Vista on a MacBook Pro... I just picked one of the new ones up, and Vista is VERY snappy on it...

Windows Experience for the MBP with the following hardware:

  • 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T7500
  • Santa Rosa chipset
  • 2GB DDR2 667MHz RAM
  • 160GB 5400 RPM HD
  • 128MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT


The bottlenecks are actually the memory (while the Santa Rosa chipset supports an 800MHz Front Side Bus, Apple is just using 667MHz DDR2 memory), and the hard drive (I didn't spring for the 7200RPM drive).  Other than that, this is a FAAAAST machine :)
