    What's your XBench Score? I am at 206.74

    I feel awesome as my machine is beating the stock i5 and i7's. Now when any of the ix have a solid state drive, well then I get murdered. Virtually all processes run faster than other computers with the exact same specs as mine. I am just wondering how that stacks up to other people with SSD's


    This had me laughing and is why I am a mean machine-123 is average...I am 10x or more:p

    Uncached Write 1284.28 135.96 MB/sec [4K blocks]
    Uncached Read 1871.75 13.26 MB/sec [4K blocks]



    Also, check out the processor differences between me and the i7...it's kind of amusing as well.

    I ran the test on my iMac, 3.06GHz C2D, 6GB 800MHz DDR2 1TB HDD.

    My iMac won over your MBP in almost every category but lost the overall score because your SSD totally smoked my HDD. It's quite amazing the difference between the types.

    I think if you hit the upload button in the program it will send your results to the website where you can compare it to others.

    You are going to cream me and virtually every other laptop on the market as it is a blazing fast hard drive and a blazing fast CPU.

    It amazes me how big the difference is as my computer outranks the i7 15 inch with a HDD simply because the read and write speeds are soooo much more. In every other category I am either the same or really far behind, and yet my averaged score is significantly higher. This reinforces that a SSD is probably the best bang for your buck upgrade.

    My buddy Dave has the exact laptop as me and I mean exact as in all specs are equal. The only difference is I have the SSD. My score is twice of his because of it. He was so stupified by this he immediately bought a Mercury Pro. Also, my processor scored higher and that is not by chance as we tested it with a variety of factors.
