Apple MacBook Pro the fastest Windows XP notebook?

Posted on Thursday, March 23 2006 @ 03:06:56 CET by

The Register Hardware reports that the fastest Windows XP Core Duo notebook is the Apple MacBook Pro!
According to benchmarks carried out by website GearLog, Apple's MacBook Pro running Windows XP is a better Adobe Photoshop rig than any other Core Duo laptop on the market.

GearLog's test results can be found here. The site used a recently detailed technique that shoehorns the Microsoft operating system onto Intel-based Macs - a trick that last week won its formulators $13,000 in prize money

The site measured the 2.16GHz Core Duo-based MacBook Pro ran through a series of Windows XP-native Photoshop CS2 scripts in 1m 10s - better than a 1.66GHz Core Duo-based Mac Mini (1m 56s) and a 2GHz Core Duo-based iMac (1m 25s). You'd expect that kind of difference given the three machines' different CPU speed grades.
