I guess text would still be the same as your screen shots of the Mac desktop right ?
Yes. I have Parallels installed w/ Win 7 and it looks great.

I didn't notice any lag whatsoever. I can usually test this pretty easily with Active Reloading in Gears of War. If you have any lag, you'll miss the reload sweet-spot. One time my 60" Sony LCD/Edge-LED I had motion flow turn on and I couldn't hit an active reload at all until I turned it off. With the HMZ, I was hitting the Active Reload every time last night. It felt very responsive.
I had some time to play with the HMZ last night. I watched about 30 min of several 3D movies and did some gaming.
I watched IMAX Under the Sea 3D and it was amazing. I have to take back my previous comments about not having a lot of 3D "pop". There where a few times I jumped when a fish would snap up it's prey. And the water snakes seemed to be swimming out in front of the screen. The depth and color was beautiful. It felt like you were under water.
I watched Captain America 3D for a few minutes and thought it looked amazing. I almost couldn't turn it off.
I also watch the first 10 min of Dark Knight (not 3d). It was so captivating that I had a hard time turning it off as well. You really do feel like you are in a movie theater. It's very strange because I could see how some people might think the screen seems close enough to touch, but it's almost like you are able to also tell your brain that it's far away and then it seems far away.
Also I'm near sighted and I can view a computer monitor without glassed/contacts. I can NOT view the HMZ without contacts or glasses. It's a blurry as it would be in a theater. So for me it's pretty convincing.
I also played Gears of War 3 in 3D last night for about about 2 hours. The 3D in that game is amazing. Yes it takes a bit of a rez hit, but it still has great shadows, texture, lighting, and depth. It's totally worth the rez hit. I wonder if the folks that are saying that console 3D gaming is unplayable, have passive 3D TV's? If so, you would be cutting your rez in a quarter rather than half because the game cuts out half vertically for 720p SBS, and the TV cuts out half horizontally to produce passive 3D. correct?
The only draw back at this point is the longterm comfort. After about 1.5 hrs it started hurting my forehead and your first reaction is to just adjust it a bit to take the pressure off, but you really can't because of the focus sweet spot.
