Benchmarks Phoronix, known for their various speed tests and reviews, compared the latest in Ubuntu and what, until recently, used to be the lastest in Mac OS X with 29 different benchmarking tests. Some of the results were rather interesting.

As I mentioned in one of my recent comments, I've been troubleshooting a problem with a friend's Macbook Air, so I've been getting re-acquainted with OS X.

There are probably real-world performance differences with 3D graphics on Intel, but in my normal use, the Air was significantly less responsive than my regular computer; in fact it wasn't much faster than my netbook.

Embarrassing.
