Hi;)

"Ken Mingis, Computerworld's Mac editor, has given Vista a spin on his Macbook Pro in order to review and compare hardware performance with OS X.

Could you tell me the meaning of the red part?

    This expression comes from test driving a car. It means testing it, trying it out, as duckie said, but it also has the implication of testing the performance of the thing- seeing what features are available and using them.
