So, on Sunday, a colleague of mine was over and I was showing him some Photoshop tips/tricks. He has the February 2011 2.3 i7 17" Macbook Pro with 16GBs of RAM, and a 7200rpm HD. Me, the entry level 2010 MP 2.8 quad with 16GBs of RAM and 2 7200rpm drives. For kicks, I wanted to see how fast his machine was compared to mine. So, I downloaded the Photoshop SpeedTest from ClubofOne.com and his MBP... smoked my MP. 18.5 seconds vs 14.1. I couldn't believe it. Now, I know there is a lot of talk about the faster i7's and then my MP is 2 year old tech. But, for heavy Adobe CS 5.5 use, is it smarter to buy a MBP these days (as a main machine)? Or is this test an "isolated" script? Where my MP would win out in overall use? Maybe I'm reaching, but I couldn't believe that "little" Mac was faster.
