Hi, I'm a student and looking to get a new laptop which will alst em a while so i think I will opt for a mac pro. My current Mac is a quad 2.5ghz G5 Powermac with 4GB RAM, and i love the performance as it always feels so sharp and can encode videos really quickly. My friend has a macbook which i regularly use, i think it is about a year and half old and its feels slow and clunky when using it. Word is a pain in the backside, however that is probably due to it not being the universal binary. Anyway things like tabs in web browsers are slow and it is annoying. If i buy a 15inch Macbook pro upgrade the processor to the 2.6ghx option and possibly the ram to 4gb, depending on cost. Will it be as fast as my PowerMac? I cannot stand slow computers and regularly run software which requires good amounts of processing power. Also, off topic, if i install windows, are the drivers good enough to run games? Thanks for any help.
