Bare Feats have done a performance comparison between 5 different 2GHz Macs:
- Dual Core G5 Power Mac
- iMac Core Duo
- MacBook Pro
- MacBook Solo (i.e. a Pro with one CPU disabled)
- PowerBook G4 (upgraded to 2GHz by a third party)
The MacBook Pro really holds itself up well, even compared to the iMac Core Duo. There’s not much trade-off in going for an Apple laptop instead of a desktop anymore! The MBP even holds its own against the Dual Core G5 Power Mac.
