Creativemac has some benchmarks up of a Macbook Pro (2.16) running Final Cut Pro 5.1 versus a Dual g5 running 5.0.4. The short story is that the Macbook Pro holds it own, and in some cases absolutely stomps the G5. Not terribly surprising – I’m a bit surprised the G5 did as well as it did actually.
I’m going to be seriously bummed if Apple doesn’t give us some more Intel products at NAB. I had a vision the other night of a 13.3″ Macbook in industrial blue. Please Steve?
