    I'm currently on the market for a MBP that is powerful enough for the work that I do. My Mac Pro is my main workstation but I will be traveling more often now and need something on the road that is backpack-able and also just as powerful or CLOSE to my main workstation. Now I know it would be hard press to find something on the market right now that is exactly like my Mac Pro, but I am open to suggestions and looking to get the closest laptop version of my main workstation. The processor in my Mac Pro is a 3.2GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon Nehalem. What's the closest MBP to that?

    I would think the 15" 2.6 i7 with either 512GB SSD or 1TB SSD


    edit: Just realised it is a 2010 MP, I was thinking it was a nMP

    Your Mac Pro scores 10440 in 64-bit Geekbench 2.

    The 2.0GHz, base model 15'' rMBP scores 12617 in 64-bit Geekbench 2. You're already gaining roughly 25% raw processing power compared to your Mac Pro just with the base model. The 2.3GHz scores in the 14k. Meaning roughly 40% more powerful than your current Mac Pro.

    Any more than that is just icing on the cake, no?
