Just reminds me of a couple of conversations I have had with other benchers. The old less processes is always better argument, and killing explorer is another funny tweak.
About 12 or 13 is where I land as well on XP though, seems to be the going number. I can still run wprime with my copy too, it's just not one of my most loved benchmarks. Actually on that note, I can run all the regular 3D stuff on it too. It's just my all round base copy.
