MacBook test data
New test data between Apple's black and white Intel-based MacBook systems has revealed unexpected results, showing numerous speed differences favoring the white model. "Testing the white 2GHz MacBook and comparing the results to the published scores of the black model, we saw small performance differences in many of the tests, with the edge going to the white model in most cases," Macworld wrote. The iMovie and Compressor MPEG-2 Encoding tests appeared to favor the white MacBook more than other tests, according to the report. More tests, which included swapping the hard drives inside both Macs, suggested that the hard drives accounted for the differences.
