Thanks for the benchmark and also the DXDiag report.
Same situation as for the Windows PC's. The Mac's have an integrated Intel graphics card, and not a dedicated card.
As such you and your students will only be able to do a few limited things with Lumion. Perhaps some fly-arounds, recording from screen and building some simple scenes may be all that you are after.
There's also no guarantee that the hardware will present to you the same look to the scene as previously, or in some cases, even allow the scene to work. Running the graphics can be highly variable when the hardware does not support the same types of features found in dedicated cards, and the software is not specifically designed and tested to make use of that card type.
Perhaps there's some way in the future for your class or school to upgrade the computers. Dedicated GPU's, for the less powerful or second hand, are quite cheap. Maybe setting up one or two more powerful workstations might the direction, so that more features of Lumion can be used such as rendering photos and video with effects.
Keep us posted.
