Could the New MBP replace an 08 Pro?
I was thinking of upgrading my 08 Mac Pro. 2x2.8 Quad with the new MBP 2.7 i7...
I'm trying to figure out if I went from 8 down to 4... if it would benefit or hinder me. I know that not all programs are designed to make full use of all available cores, but my biggest concern is with Final Cut and After Effects.... since I use them for a living.
The only thing I'm loosing is 4 cores. I still gain more Ram and faster data speeds with flash memory and thunderbolt raid, trumping the Mac Pro in several areas. Plus I then gain mobility away from my desk to a location video shoot for work.
Your thoughts are much appreciated.

by the Benchmarks
By the geekbench benchmarks, you should see a 25% speed uptick. If your tasks are highly processor intensive for long periods of time, however, you may run into problems with heat causing your processors to clock back on the laptop.

I have the same mac pro and wanting to upgrade as well. I did have a macbook pro at one stage but the heat killed it. I don't trust the macbook pro no matter how high tech its heat control system is. I am even edgy on going with the iMac. I use photoshop and cinema4d for my heaviest usage. I don't want my mac cooking. And I really do not want to revisit a windows machine again. so /bump!
