I missed this when it made the rounds about a month ago, but if you’re considering a MacBook this video is a good example of how Windows Vista Beta 2 performs on the MacBook’s shared GMA 950 graphics. (Spoiler: it runs pretty darned good!)

In previous articles, I said that Vista should run fine on the MacBook, even with its poor GMA 950 graphics. The Vista Beta 2 download was made public last week, and I finally got around to installing it on my MacBook. The full Aero Glass indeed does work fine on my 2.0 GHz Core Duo MacBook. Below is an H.264 Quicktime video (in two sizes) demonstating what Aero Glass looks like:
