    Well, I'm cool with new name of Powerbook and I don't really care about the battery life of the Macbook Pro. All I want to know is has anyone got chance to run Xbench or other benchmarking apps on new iMac or/and Macbook at MWSF? I really want to see how much different in REAL WORLD applications. :D

    They haven't even shipped yet!!! How can someone possibly get an xBench? I wouldn't rely on xBench anyways as its not optimized for Intel processors, or the new Intel architecture. That would actually be a bad benchmark IMO to go from IMO.

    There were new Intel iMacs and Macbook Pro available at Apple booth at Macworld after Steve's keynote, so I'm hoping someone just doing like what they did last year at WWDC. For Xbench, they already have 1.2 version in Universal Binary runs natively on new Intel processors.
