Craig Wood posted an article with lots of details on the performance of Apple's new Intel Core Duo based MacBook Pro notebook. He ran four media related tests on this new notebook and compared the result with previous PowerPC G4 and G5 systems.
As you can see below, the new MacBook Pro encoded audio 33% faster than the previous PowerBook, at 20x compared to 15x. Unfortunately, the MacBook Pro is still 20% slower than the original PowerMac G5, which encoded audio at 25x, and more powerful G5 quad systems are now available.
