    ADDED LATER:

    OK, 4pm and no answers forthcoming, so I went ahead, shut down every application and ran the tests:

    PowerMac G4 Graphite (AGP/Sawtooth)
    1.4GHz Sonnet CPU
    2GB PC100
    80GB System drive (65GB free space)




    2008 Mac Pro 3,1 Dual Quad-core 2.8GHz
    12GB PC2-6400
    320GB System drive (170GB free space)



    Verdict: to be honest, given that the Mac Pro has 8 x as many processors all running at twice the clock speed of the G4 and 6 x as much RAM running at 8 x the bus speed, I expected a bigger difference. A lot bigger.


    ADDED LATER STILL!

    OK, now I've seen pigoo3's post about Xbench under-reporting on 8-core Mac Pro machines. That might go some way to explaining things...

    Interesting. I tried running XBench this morning and it hung, I assumed it was a Lion issue.

    But that SSD benchmark is really amazing. The overall blows my MBP out of the water, just based on that alone.

    Yours may be hanging the same place as mine - leave out the Thread test. Don't think it's working in Lion.

    I should rerun it on my MBP since I've got scores in SL on that one - check and see if the OS is having an affect on any of the other scores.

    Mine hung when I tried to run xbench under lion a couple weeks ago, also on the thread test. I'm leaving it out and giving it a go later, along with the new 1.6GHz i5 MBA that my fiancee just got.

    I'm sure with the thread test, the CPU differences would be even more apparent. I'm more surprised by how hard that SSD spanks mine!

    for some reason image links aren't working for me right yet. I'll get that straightened out then upload the results

    You, sir, need to get yourself an SSD. That will certainly improve your score.

    I just got this 17in Macbook Pro on Friday, the things really flies.. The thing that impressed me was how cool it runs after hearing so many stories about a heat problem.. In real life benchmarks don't mean much but..........
