Barefeats: Apple Laptops Face Off
Sorry Apple, but the MacBook 13" is a "slouch" when it comes to 3D gaming and Tiger Core Image graphics. Even the iBook G4/1.42 with 32MB of VRAM beat it running Doom 3 and UT2004 Inferno Flyby. (We didn't test Quake 4 on the iBook since we no longer have one in the lab.)
