I remember the past issue you did where you compared the Mac laptops to similar form-factor PC laptops. I was wondering if you could do it again, but broaden the scope to desktops as well (who wouldn't want to see DM2010 school a Mac Pro?). I would love to see such a comparison of benchmarks in a future issue of MPC.

I'd like to see where this stands today as well. If we focus on application benches, battery life, and heft and leave looks and feel out of it I think it'd still be close. I'm really interested in, however, if Mac's still hold the trophy for media rendering. I'm still seeing AMD as the rending machines in Movies (assuming under a *Nix OS) and those aren't in Mac's.

I would bet if you compared similarly configured OEM PC/Mac Pro it would be quite close.
