    MacBook Pro being Duel 2Ghz, 2GIG RAM, 7200RPS? With G5 having the same amount of RAM.

    FIGHT!!

    Seriously.... the G5 would still kick its arse on Floating point/vector stuff, but other than that they're probably quite evenly matched.

    From a whole host of benchmarks that I have seen, I would say that a MacBook Pro and DP/DC Power Mac G5 run at about the same speed (e.g., a 2GHz MBP = a 2GHz DP Power Mac G5).

    Although, I just read Mac Worlds most recent review of the MBP, and the 2GHz MBP was actually slower than a dual-core Power Mac G5.
