    A) Intel Xeon Gallatin socket 604, 3.2ghz 1 mb cache, 533mhz fsb times 2
    (So two of these processors in a server)

    B) Amd 64 4400+ 2.3ghz

    C) Collectors Edition Macbook 2.4ghz c2d 3mb cahce? , 1066mhz fsb

    Geez the first two are so old. Moore's Law means that likely the MacBook CE is BY FAR more powerful, and it's got that huge FSB. There should be no compassion. And fyi the Xeon runs like a flamming grill under the mexican sun en the middle of el desierto.

    Texas, unfortunately.
    The MacBook will have the most, but the Xeon may come close. Don't quote me on that, though.

    Thanks. I figure it's the best way to describe the let's keep throw coals on the fire thing called netburst

    (The coals are of course an analogy for intel just uping the clock rate over and over again and adding more pipelines)

    Wouldn't the FSB be the limiting factor here? The computer can only run as fast as it's slowest part and the FSB would serverly limit it compared to the Core 2 Duo.

    It should be called the "Steve Jobs screwed me out of Firewire edition"

    The technology as a whole is the downfall. Basically two pentium 4 cores running at 3.2GHz. Any Core branded dualcore CPU will out perform it.

    Yeah, but it's also the I can run any hard drive I frakkin' want to edition.
