    I picked up a low end RMBP from best buy in omaha yesterday. Today I figured I would try it out against my mac pro. I loaded up the same HD video on both and hit the share video button. The RMBP finished the export a few seconds faster than the mac pro. I loaded up the photoshop speed test, and they finished within 1 second of each other.

    Yeah looks like most MPs are gonna be slower seeing as how they are so dated.

    Is urs a 2010?

    Nice to hear the RMbp doing so well.

    Now if that MSI GUSII ever comes out... Might displace MPs even more.

    Maybe. But with the software that we actually use everyday, I think the rmbp is gonna make Mac pro look very bad.
