    It was this one, and it's because of the CD Drive being slower in the Macbook.

    that had been suggested but, but according to him a friend of his also has an"Older" macbook too, and that imports at about 20x just as his PC does

    while i appreciate what your saying, i'm not 100% convinced that he will just accept that, having just bought a Brand new Machine only to find someone with an older version of the machine can RIP music faster, of course he has not bought the machine solely for this purpose but its disheartening when this happens

    That sounds like rubbish to me. My Macbook gets like 5.4x (160kbps VBR).
