    Wow. I wonder how Photoshop on OS X will perform in comparison when it has an Intel binary.

    I find it EXTREMELY ironic that a Mac runs Windows XP faster than any laptop on the market.

    Its faster than the Acer because the Acer is 0.16GHz slower. It is faster than the 2.16GHz laptops because none of the others have X1600 GPU.
