    There are really too many variables to properly test this out. For example, if you use converting some songs in iTunes as a benchmark, the Mac will always come out on top simply because iTunes has been optimised for OSX.

    I guess you could just compare speeds of different apps you use on both machines, whatever they may be. It's a very tricky task though and the end result is kind of irrelevant.
