CNET reviews MacBook, MBP

CNET.co.uk has reviewed Apple's MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops, offering speed tests with benchmarks to compare the two portable devices to one another as well as similar competing PC laptops. The Cupertino-based company's MacBook Pro tested runs significantly faster than its smaller consumer-oriented MacBook sibling, but all tested Apple models drew positive comments from reviewer Dan Ackerman. "We did see a significant boost over the non-Pro version of the MacBook, which includes a slower 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo CPU, in both the Photoshop CS2 and the iTunes encoding tests," Ackerman wrote. "As with any current Core 2 Duo laptop, the MacBook Pro is more than powerful enough for running productivity and multimedia applications and tackling basic photo and video editing, as well." The review covered notebook design, features, and performance running various applications such as Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Quake 4.

    Best ever...

    30" video display too...

    ...which I couldn't find on the Dell site for any of the laptops, despite the fact that Dell offers a 30" monitor - a 4 megapixel display...

    Apple it would seem sets the bar again...

    Core Duo

    My Core Duo (pre Core 2 Duo) is pretty darn good as well.
