Okay, I knew the day would come that something newer and quicker would catch my eye that would make me shy away from my beloved 2.5GHz MacBook Pro. well, the day is here and I just picked up a 24" 3GHz iMac. I just set it up and I've already run Geekbench just to get an initial run. I plan to run more system and more importantly graphics tests as soon as I can. but for now, here's the difference between my two systems according to Geekbench. 2.5GHz MBP w/ 4GB of RAM: 3218 3.0GHz iMac w/ 2GB of RAM: 3983 -as I said above, I will run more tests and edit this post as needed.
