Actually the system profiler shows absolutely no information about the graphics processor at all; I only know it's 8MB because I remember the spec from when we bought it. It is indeed an original Tibook and I'm pretty impressed with the performance of OSX running on it to the degree that I don't feel a need for a brand-new one, but I'd like to have a 1GHz model someday with a bigger hard drive (optical in/out for audio would be nice too), but I digress.
I'm satisfied that OpenGL isn't really supposed to function on this machine and I'm happy that with one exception (Chimera Beast) all my ROMs function either with Software Rendering or OpenGL. Now if we can get the joystick issue that seems to have cropped up with the new release I'll be truly pleased and just want the Space Fury voice sample speedup sorted.
Oh, and I second the request for Software Rendering to be put on the Video options tab -- actually I think the "Options..." button should be done away with altogether in favour of up-front tabbed config or a real-live "Preferences..." dialogue menu.
Again, thanks to all and sundry involved as I find this a far more flexible option than MAME Classic+DOS MAME which is what I run on my office laptop.
