    Could someone encode the Snow Leopard welcome video using the Apple TV 2 preset (Handbrake 0.9.5) and post the average FPS. I'm trying to figure out how much faster the current i5 and i7 MBPs are compared to my MacBook. The location of the video is:

    /System/Library/CoreServices/Setup\ Assistant.app/Contents/Resources/TransitionSection.bundle/Contents/Resources/intro.mov

    Thanks in advance!

    Open Terminal.app and type:

    open /System/Library/CoreServices/Setup\ Assistant.app/Contents/Resources/TransitionSection.bundle/Contents/Resources/

    The command will open a new Finder window and from there you should be able to select the intro.mov file. To my knowledge, it's only available in Leopard and Snow Leopard.

    On my late 2007 MacBook (2.2 GHz Core 2 Duo) I get 13.03 FPS average. So the current generation MBPs are approximately 2x faster. This is quite a substantial speed bump :)

    Very true. It also shows that the difference between the mobile i5 and i7 chips is minimal at best.

    I have known it since I purchased my computer, thats why I didn't get the i7. But I was just stating it for the OP.

    It would be also interesting to see how good the C2Ds in the 13" MBPs are performing :)

    22.61 fps. Lots of other stuff open in background (Word, iTunes, Chrome, Picasa, preview, terminal, finder.)

    Stock i5 with 8 GB ram.
