    What an embarrassing set of tests with zero meaning.

      Portal, Starcraft 2, Team Fortress 2 and WoW all work just fine on my Sandy Bridge laptop so idk what you're talking about Curaga (medium to high graphics on all those)

        osx ships a nvidia drivers only with the new releases, but I think that is an advantage, no experimental drivers, only stable.

          Sandy is worse than a 5450. Perhaps you play on a low resolution?

            Yeah I hate it when people bash the 5450 or 6450 and claim how slow it is, (which it is) and then claim hd4000 as if it was some kind of god send. Additionally I dare anyone, anyone at all, to do a side by side visual comparison. One monitor running any AMD card and another identical monitor sitting right next to it running an hd4000. Please someone. Anyone.

              You just have to know where to look but Nvidia does have Mac drivers available. ;D

                When is Intel going to support the latest version of OpenGL, I wonder? You know - like the real GPU companies do.

                    In my opinion is an advantage, is more difficult to receive a buggy driver , because this was tested on the beta releases of mac osx.

                      MultiOs PCs with hypervisor: The future

                      I miss MS WOS and Android at this benchmarking and is great the mac mini as the OSX / MS-WOS / GNU-Linux / Android benchmarking paradigm.

                      I would make even a 100 index for benchmarking the MAC mini for future benchmarks with other machines as IBM PC x8086 was years ago with first benchmarking tools. for normal people is easy to read 1.5 times faster or better than a Mac Mini - and of course keeping the real results - than actual benchmarks at Phoronix, having an index based in a well known and best selled machine gives a lot of clearity.

                      Imagine a iphone 100 base benchmark index, even for compare Iphone new models and of course benchmark any other smartphone or a Samsung S2 benchmark with the problem that you cannot install other OSs and at X86 computers you still can.

                      I do also miss a Xen hypervisor installation with VGA passthrough and this 4 OSs running and tested.

                      There are a italian company that has made a X86 hybrid tablet-notebook with Ubuntu, Android and MS WOS, i hope that with Xen hypervisor instead of GRUB I think it is the future: MultiOS PCs with hypervisor even MS has just do it at their new Xbox console
