      I suggest you to wait for the 2013 Macbook Air. You'll avoid the MS tax and get better-designed hardware for the same price.

        Buy a Sony Vaio Z if you want a better designed laptop, not some Apple shit (did you know the new macbook pro doesn't even have an ethernet port? who wants that shit?)
        ## VGA ##
        AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
        Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

          So there are ~37% using Intel IGP and ~40% using Intel driver. Interesting

            To be fair, I don't need ethernet, but I hear installing Linux on Apple products can still be a pain due to all this EFI etc. shit. Also, the current-gen Macbook Airs don't have the best resolution exactly. I find the ASUS Zenbook and Samsung Series 9 ultrabooks to be quite nice, but that's the 2012 Ivy Bridge models still (of course).

                I'll have to submit some benchmarks from my i855 laptops. Is 0verkill in the benchmark suite?

                    This is just people going over and running a benchmark or whatever. Doesn't seem particularly demonstrative of anything.

                      If an Air is the same price as a comperable ultrabook, I would probably get the Air. Apples hardware is pretty nice, and then you could run pretty much any OS out there.

                      All that aside, I'm pretty happy with my HD 3000 graphics. I guess we will see how much that will change when Steam arrives and I fire up TF2 again.

                        It should count AMD + ATI as only one company

                        The graph is misleading because it shows ATI as a separate company. The numbers for AMD and ATI should be summed together and that would probably bring it to above Nvidia.

                        So, Intel is NOT “Winning Over NVIDIA For Linux Enthusiasts”, it is winning over AMD, as AMD was the leader and is now the second place (Nvidia is now the third).

                          Or you could get an ultra slim with Ubuntu preloaded - https://zareason.com/shop/UltraLap-430.html

                            Just make sure you read the fine-print of those ultrabooks.. A lot of the ones on the market have a keyboard that is absolutely horrible for any extended typing / programming use..

                            The intel graphics is nice, and Intel is certainly doing a good job. The only problem is that on a 1080p laptop screen, you *almost* have no choice but to run AMD Trinity or discrete graphics because the Intel graphics is still quite slow at 1080p for anything more than vanilla desktop work and videos, even with the new Ivy Bridge chips.

                              Intel spells the end of Apple

                              Intel + Linux + Wayland (w/X in the interim atop) = the end of Apple on the desktop and the installing of the new king on the desktop, with Intel heading the pack.

                              Except Intel can't lose, because it worships a higher power - Linux. The only kind of worship at Apple is self-worship.

                              You read it here first.
