lets try this one more time eh
title of thread is about macbook pros.

that means mobile processors
you cant compare mobile and desktop.

the 2.66GHz DUAL MOBILE outperforms the lower GHz quad MOBILE
that my friend is a fact!
even with multi-threaded Apps.
benchmarks dont lie, i have already linked to the benchmarks.
unless you magically think that somehow the same intel cpu in a MacBook will magically do better than it does in a PC laptop.

now you want to get into desktop?
a 3.33GHZ 6 core outperforms a 2.8GHz 12 core
again even with mutithreaded apps.
again fact!

so you were saying?
oh yeah imacs not sure why you mentioned those in a MOBILE processor thread.

are the new imacs (desktop processor)faster than a mobile (laptop processor)
