    First off sorry if I posted in the wrong forum.
    I currently have a MacBook but will upgrade to a MBP soon. I also had a 1.8Gx2 G5 tower, and on my last visit to the apple store I wanted to know how much of an improvement I should expect when I move up to a MBP and since I do use hand brake often and it uses as many cores are available. I used a 2 min clip from a dvd I authored, and used the standard preset for apple TV.
    I couldn't upload the file for the imac 2.8 24" but it managed 50.75fps and an average of 41.14 fps. Hardly scientific I know. And in regards of time the Mac mini took almost 3 minutes, while the Mac Pro took slightly over 30 seconds.

    The question was if the MBP would be faster than the Mini and the G5

    and I'd like to say yes, but it might be a no.

    @OP: If you sent me the file, I would try… if you have the name of the DVD, I'll get it from my collection.

    I'd lean toward the 'yes' :p.

    The improvement you should expect when switching from MB to MBP depends on the MacBook you have. If you have an old Core Duo 1.83 model, a new MBP 2.4 will be visibly faster, since it has a higher frequency, 64-bit support and a newer, better architecture. If you have a current 2.4 MacBook, a 2.4 MBP will be exactly the same.

    there's always the problem of whether or not the program was optimized on the Intel vs. the PowerPC, despite it being "Universal"

    i'd say xBench would be a more official score.
