    I have the latest macbook pro quad 2.2ghz 4GB ram. I was wondering if the powermac g5 2.5Ghz with a TB hard drive and 4GB ram is faster?

    Not even close. Even though it has a higher base clock speed, it's much, much less efficient, and also doesn't have turbo boost or hyperthreading. The MBP will do any CPU intensive task in half the time the G5 would, or better.
