What machine do you have? He has a 1.83 Ghz...Which tells me you at least have a 2.0 Ghz or 2.13 Ghz?

If you want a fair comparison, you should have Windows installed on your machine via Boot Camp and run benchmarking tools, such as SiSandra.

His computer sucks. Period. The end. :-D

Have a look here

Try MacGeek: this is a cross-plattform benchmark test. Free to download at: http://www.geekpatrol.ca/geekbench/

But be warned. Real world performance is different. It means that you have the software and a computer which enables you to perform your personal tasks best. There are people who where highly productive on the first mac, and others are unable to be productive on the latest model.

You don't need benchmarks.

Simple task: Find all files on your harddisk with "abc" in the file name or somewhere in the content. On my MacBook 1.83 GHz it takes less than three seconds including typing command-space, abc. On his Toshiba, I would estimate it takes him 15 seconds just to start searching, then you can watch that stupid dog wagging its tail for five minutes.
