Apple MacBook Pro benchmarked in iTunes

Posted on Tuesday, January 17 2006 @ 02:59:25 CET by

A user from the Apple Insider Forum posted some benchmarks of the new Intel-based MacBook Pro notebooks, comparing them to the older PowerBook G4 and PowerMac G5 systems.

He used iTunes to benchmark these systems. He converted songs using the "Convert Selection to AAC..." feature and noted the rip speeds as displayed in iTunes.
Machine Model - iTunes Rip Speed
MacBook Pro 2x1.83 (Macworld demo unit) - 20x
PowerBook G4 1.67 (15" 1280x854 model) - 12.5x
PowerMac G5 2x2.0 (rev A) - 25x
According to these results the new MacBook Pro is quite a bit faster than the PowerBook G4 but slower than a PowerMac G5 system. You can check out the forum thread over here.
