All, I'm a long time PC user, with a lot of McFriends. They're constantly spitting numbers and figures and rumours and rhetoric at me. I'm wondering if anyone out there has some GENUINE UNBIASED benchmarks that compare equivalent (if there is such a thing) PCs and Macs. My own personal opinion is that in the "olden days", when the G4 was first out, it was kick-ass, compared to the Pentium 3s they were clocked slightly under. But as Pentium 4s topped 1 gig, and now 2 gig, and with advances such as RDRAM used in P4, and DDR Ram used in new Athlons, etc, the Apples are looking decidedly underpowered. Especially for their price. (That being said, their laptops aren't bad in terms of price for performance, just because everything else is so bad.) What I am looking for here is Honest, factual, unbiased information. Please don't look on this as a troll or an excuse to come on and say "Windows sucks! Aha ha ha ha ha! Macs Rule." I'm looking for informed, factual NON BIASED information. The only unbiased info I've been able to find is a quite old article in a graphics magazine comparing a bunch of graphics workstations. [For what it's worth: The Mac (a G4 500) was well and truly in the back of the pack. In fact it was only beaten for last by an iMac. And by the way, the competition was Pentium 3s @ 733-900mhz.] Apologies for the long post. I wanted to establish a few things to leave as little stupity room as possible for the uninformed Zealots out there.
