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.

RE[2]: Benchmarks

"What I noticed with the benchmarks is that even though the processors were identical for laptops #1 to #4 the graphics GPU were not. Only laptops #3 and #4 used NVIDIA Geforce Go 7800 GPU where as laptop #1 and #2 used ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 and X1600."

The MacBook Pro has an ATI X1600, BUT NO ACCELERATED DRIVERS yet -only a generic VGA-like driver- so I doubt there is any advantage in that.
