Benchmarks "The only benchmark where the PowerPC-based Mac mini outperformed the Intel-based Mac mini was Stdlib Allocate, which is also the only benchmark where the PowerBook G4 outperformed the MacBook Pro. The Stdlib Allocate benchmark depends more on standard library performance than raw hardware performance. It's also worth mentioning that the Intel-based Mac minis were, for the most part, faster than our baseline system (a PowerMac G5 1.6GHz). Yikes. Overall, we're impressed with the Intel-based Mac mini's performance."

I would like to see some benchmarks about the noise output of the two models of Mac Mini.

Also, on an unrelated note, does anyone know roughly when Leapord, the next verion of OS X is expected to be released?

Thanks.

At WWDC 2005 it was announced that Leopard was scheduled for late 2006, early 2007.
