Apple has a history of s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g- the truth. I call it spinning benches. Its why its so important for Arn to come up with a good suite of benches for us Mac users.

I guess it depends on how you look at it. They said the SPEC tests equate to 2x the performance. You can take this to mean a lot of things. For example, does the rating mean it capable of performing at that level (and no more) or does it say that given current optimization techniques, this is how much we know you can get.
But test like these don't mean much to me (the SPEC tests). All I want to know is if the new hardware makes me more productive for the amount of money I have to put in. Like in the case of the MacBook Pro, it does although it's based more on potential then speed (which is lots faster).
