    How the heck did you get 118? I have a 2.6 and i only got a 110.72.
    Edit: For some reason when pasting my scores it ended up stretching the page to twice its size. But yeah, i only got a 118 and I have a 2.6, 2Gb ram, 256mb vram.

    Yeah, I just ran geekbench 34bit and the score is more reasonable. But anyways, it sounds like your machine is running fine. As Jurwin suggested, use Geekbench. According to them a 2.4 Macbook Pro from Mid 2007 should have a score around 3094, yours might be a tad higher if it's a penryn.

    I got a 113 on my 2.4 ghz penryn. So yours sounds about right. There are also so many small factors that play a role in benchmarks .

    I wonder why mine came up 119?

    How'd you get a txt file from xbench?

    Hahaha, wow!
    Now i got 142 with the 10.5.3. I guess the fast WD 3200BEVT makes a lot of score. A friend of mine has the 2.6 Penryn wi6h 7200 Hitachi and he only gets 135:)

    That is the model with 320gb capacity from Western Digital. I dont know what the bevt stands for...


    @desi
    Search for xbench os x on google, there you can find the benchmark tool...

    This is what i got, with my macbook pro. According to the test my disk is very slow. How can this be? Is this normal. I do notice i have freezes, but not awfully often. Is this ok?
    Thanks a lot

    Being someone soon to be a mac convert, is there a reason to spend 250$ on the 2.5 GHz to 2.6 GHz processor bump in the new 15" MBP?

    Not a good reason. The performance/value just isn't there. The only people who could possibly justify that upgrade are a) rich, b) actually use the machine for work, are paid for their time, and use something so CPU bottlenecked that there is an ROI for the miliseconds saved.

    For an average person, it is a complete waste of money.

    Thank you for the speedy reply.

    But more specifically, I am a physicist that does alot of computationally intensive programming in Mathematica, programs that will often run for hours. In this scenario, would there be any noticeable difference in the two processors?

    good results on the new WD 320 GB HD. Pretty happy about that.

    Mathematica, MatLab and the such are cpu intensive so the increase in speed would help. But expect the difference to be by minutes. Obviously the larger the file the bigger the gain but if it takes a 2.5 MBP 2hours to run the test, it would take the 2.6 an hour and 53 mins. This is obviously a huge guess but it illustrates that the difference is not groundbreaking.

    If you don't need portability it would be much better for you to purchase a Mac Pro. You'd need to purchase a screen but since you can buy any cheap dell screen since I'm assuming you wouldn't need to be doing photography or anything like that.

    2.5 15" MBP: $2499 + AppleCare (A must for portables, really really recommended) $349 = $2848+ taxes

    2.8 Quad Mac Pro w wireless add on: $2349 + $250 Dispaly= $2549 + taxes

    2.8 Quad v.s. 2.5 dual is a huge performance boost.
