Apple Want the fastest Windows XP Core Duo notebook? Then buy a Mac. 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. 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 $13000 [EUR 10760] in prize money.

I find these benchmarks claims surrounding apple products to be highly dubious "'Fastest Windows XP Notebook'" for example.

... especially since the said laptop was actually slower on all the tests except one >->-> by 1 single second ...
