Read this article today in a doctor's waiting room so I thought I'd link it and post it.

It compares the speed of a dual 2ghz G5 and a 3.2 ghz Xeon system. G5 wins, or so I gather.

See for yourself:

I also read this article a couple of moths ago, don't know how out dated it is, but still nice to know there are people who aren't going to blindly pick Windows over Mac.

Unfortunately, I think that most of the types of people that seriously read and consider articles in Popular Mechanics are already in the party that make s informed decisions about computer purchases. What we need is a plug for the G5 as the best computer ever in Cosmo or something like that. :p
