    I tried to find a thread on here where people can post/compare Geekbench results. If there is such a thread please link to it and I'll post my results there.

    Here are mine for my Early 2011 Macbook Pro. It sports 16gb of 1333mhz RAM and a Crucial MX100 256gb SSD disk. I'm running Mavericks with the latest updates.

    How do you think the score holds up? Don't really understand how I should interpret these results compared to the ones being published on everymac.com

    You should compare it in Geekbench itself, at browser.primatelabs.com.

    For example, my late-2013 13" rMBP scores 7057. If I want to compare with other late-2013 13" rMBPs, I just click on the Benchmark Chart on the right side and select a result to compare with.

    Thanks! Just uploaded my results there now. Their interface is a bit confusing though. Should be a lot easier to compare to identical setups. I haven't actually managed to filter it like that so far.

    If thats number is for single core its a pretty awesome number I'd say.

    Yeah that's the thing, it's a 64-bit multi core score. It's essentially a 2008 Penryn Core 2 Duo in a 2010 machine.

    So as you can tell I'm really looking forward to a Broadwell 13".

    I think I ran geekbench scores only when I'm ready to buy a new Mac. That is, I see what my current score is, walk into an apple store and run the benchmark. Other then that, I largely ignore them. I think they have a purpose, but I don't want to get hung up on the numbers.

    I'm happy with my rMBP's performance, so I don't care what the numbers are and how it stacks up against anything else.

    Once I come to the decision of buying a new MBP, I'll run the benchmarks again, but that's only to be sure that for the money I'm paying for it, that the the speed difference is sizable.
