    The Intel 950 graphics chip is more then up to the task for running Aero in Vista.

    I've run Vista on a Macbook and it runs just fine with all the fancy graphics. The Intel GMA 950 is a very capable onboard video solution. Though of course, it doesn't hold water to a serious standalone video card. It is definitely nowhere near the performance of your 7600GT.

    it was more of a sarcastic comment what i was trying to say

    ive had vista business on a MB, and a MBP. It ran just fine on both.

    I just am not all that crazy about vista in general. Plus i dont really need two OS's for now, and we all know what osx is!
