    those of you with the rMBP, what is your windows version and windows experience index score? (might help to boot into windows directly via bootcamp when running the test).

    i'll check mine when i'm home but i think it was 7.2 or 7.3 if i remember correctly on windows 7 sp1.

    Processor 7.6
    Memory 7.7
    Graphics 7.3
    Gaming 7.3
    Hard disk 7.8

    This is a 2.6/16/768, but obviously I wouldn't expect it to be better than a 2.3 as the graphics is what's keeping the score down. Perfectly respectable for a reasonable laptop though, although the drop from my previous desktop at 7.8 is noticeable when doing serious processing. Windows does run applications significantly faster than OSX, though. Where I have the identical application in both Win7 and OSX versions the Windows version is sometimes several times faster. Presumably this is more to do with the fact that most OSX applications are mechanical ports rather than anything inherent in the OS, but it is worth thinking about. For heavy video work it's always better to reboot into Windows and do it there.

    That is very surprising, especially for video work, and contrary to perceived (possibly dated) wisdom of apple being faster at media. I am interested in this point myself as I am coming from Windows and looking to do a load of photo processing work. Where is it best to install Adobe CS, mainly photoshop? I was hoping to move as much as possible into OS X. Go native and all that.
