    I've been using my MacBook Pro 2.6ghz 17" HD screen for almost a month now, but for some reason, I feel it's slow. I did an erase and install last night and ran Geekbench (32bit) this afternoon and below are the results.
    I am running Leopard.
    I haven't installed anything other than iLife 08 that came with the disc.
    I've also closed all applications that are running (including dashboard apps) and turned off Spaces.

    Wasn't it suppose to be at least 2000+? :confused:

    I just restarted and ran it again and this time I got Geekbench score of 1670. But wasn't that still slow for a MacBook Pro core2duo 2.6ghz with 4GB ram? :confused:

    I just tested my Macbook, without closing more than a few programs.
    2.16ghz, 2gigs. Geekbench: 2804. Something's wrong with your MBP.

    Are you sure there's nothing running in the background taking up resources. Check activity monitor. Let us know what the results are.

    Is the battery in the machine?

    If not, put the battery in and try again.

    I am in the Uk, in my study and am powered of my battery and charging my BB 8320 b USB. I am currently downloading something in the background, listening to some itunes and browsing the web with screen at full brightness and backlit keyboard half way. I am actually looking forward to retrying with nothing else once download has finished.

    I have no idea what you're talking about.

    My post was to the OP. Apple Macbooks run slower without the battery. Apple lowers the performance of the machine when the battery is not in the machine.

    So, if the OP didn't have the battery in his machine when testing, he should put the battery in and try again. I would not suggest ever running your MB or MBP without the battery as the performance is abysmal.

    You were right! Thanks for letting me know. I have a habit of leaving the battery out of laptops since when I was still using pc laptops. I know battery technologies have improved over the years but I still feel dubious about leaving the battery in a laptop as if it'll die faster. But I guess I have no choice since the Macbook runs slower without battery, which is weird. I don't recall if it's the same with my powerbook g4. :confused:

    P.S: Is it that Apple is trying to make the battery die faster so you'll have to buy them? (after applecare period)

    If the battery is removed from a MacBook or MacBook Pro, the computer will automatically reduce the processor speed. This prevents the computer from shutting down if it demands more power than the A/C adaptor alone can provide.

    i guess running a 2.6 GHz C2D Laptop including LCD and high powered graphics takes more than a measly 85w. :)

    The processors have been battery dependent since the days of Powerbooks and iBooks...

    what is the test you guys are doing?

    where can i locate it in my MBP??

    do i have to install this geekbench thing or it's already in my Leopard?

    i want to try testing it with my MBP too

    No, I was just wondering why my brand new MacBook Pro wasn't performing well and it turned out that running the MacBook without the battery installed will reduced the overall processor speed of the MacBook Pro. I took out the battery because I'm afraid rechargeable batteries deteriorate faster if I leave it charging all the time.
