Rounding out the benchmarks, we saw an interesting picture with the Winstone test suite.  Like we saw on a couple of occassions earlier, the S-presso managed its best score with Content Creation with integrated graphics.  In fact, it was the best score of the three scenarios, topping out at 21 points.  The score slipped a fraction with the 6800 installed while the AI7 lagged by 1.5 points.  Conversely, Business Winstone was the complete opposite, with the S-presso adding 1.2 points to its score with the 6800 installed.  The AI7 topped this test at 19.2, a full 1.4 points over the S-presso's best score.
