We ran a typical Apple macbook pro 13 inch battery of tests, including games, applications, and a couple other areas. Time constraints limited the amount of testing we could get done before the NDA lift (and it's already a few hours late), but we will be providing a follow-up article with further testing and information. That said, if there are any specific areas that you'd like to see tested, feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment.

I see person I call but they cannpt see me, only still picture can be seen. I printed the users guide and tried every thing..I am on Skype.


Try making sure you both have the same version of Skype. Sometimes an older version of Skype can also help.
Another thing to check is the DirectX version on both ends, as it is used for video rendering.
Some more ideas on how to fix webcam problems can maybe help as well.
