Unfortunately I think I already know the answer. I am looking at the modbook for max-msp-jitter use. But I think for openGL the video card that it comes with will not perform nearly as well as the one in the macbook. I assume maxing both machines out with 4GB of ram.
Please tell me I am wrong.
The mac book pro has
NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT with 256MB
The modbook http://www.axiotron.com/index.php?id=modbook has
Intel GMA X3100 with 144MB of DDR2 SDRAM shared with main memory
