    Floating Point Processor floating point performance 4510
    Memory Memory performance 2489
    Stream Memory bandwidth performance 1933

    dude your IBM is probably 3-4 years old? of course your brand new MBP will be 2,3x as fast.

    It has nothing to do with macs being better. Its the fact you have an old laptop and comparing it with a new one. Of course it will be a lot better.

    this is like the news story about people rescuing dolphins - nestled among the stories of murders and airplane crashes.
