    Hey all, ran in the Apple store, downloaded Xbench and ran it..

    Here are the results...

    Keep in mind, I didn't look at the spec (CPU) but Apple is notorius for putting out the higher end.

    No MACBOOK PRO was available for testing....

    for consistent comparisions between models, i advise not testing hd's

    or just use geekbench

    FWIW, I don't use the track pad that often on my MBP but when I do, I use the button. Have tried it with the pad like a PC (which is what the new MACBOOK is doing now) and am not a huge fan of it.

    I sometimes bring a mouse, but if I have to use a pad, I like the button. Pretty decent marks actually, although can be deceiving, won't know until GAMERS report on FPS (frames per second) as the 1st GEN Macbook went from 70% to 171% in OPEN_GL but that didn't mean anything for games, but you could run motion.

    But I think this should be a step up as why advertise that you can play games, watch movies if it was cheap on board graphics.

    Still, lack of firewire. Hmmmf.

    Exactly :)

    If you look, you will notice I have HD's benchmark turned off.

    There is no bench mark for the HD in this test as HD will skew the numbers, so this XBENCH is WITH HD turned off, for those interested.

    As I said, this will really be illustrated further once the FPS games get marked on it.

    For those NOT in the know, all you need to be concerned with is the OPEN_GL score, this is what matters the most.

    Of a more interesting note, the overall CPU score is HIGHER on the Macbook than on my MACBOOK pro 2.4 last gen 4MB cache duo core 6 months old, right before the touch pad had the extra gestures.

    All in all, I feel the MBP got somewhat cheapened, and it did, a little as they are now using the same parts (almost), and the MACbook has come a bit closer to the MBP (which is good for first time buyers) but the present MBP should be $1499 and they should release a 4 core 15/17 at $1999 and $2499 et-cetera and stick with the same case as mine. For once, while I might get a MB, I am glad I have the one I have now as these are great feeling, love the keyboard and should last for years.


    Again, no HD on this XBENCH test.

    My 2.0 Alu MacBook kicks out 125. That's with the HDD test turned on though. I'll run it again turned off tonight.
