 MacBook Pro: First Impressions

A good review of a Mac Book Pro.

"Note that the MacBook Pro is almost exactly twice as fast as the PowerBook G4, despite being handicapped by one-fourth of the installed RAM and a nominally slower disk. However, the MacBook Pro is only slightly slower than the beefy dual-processor Power Mac G5. I attribute the MacBook Pro's performance to an I/O subsystem which is vastly better than what we've seen on Macs to date. I think this bodes very well for professional desktop Macs based on their new hardware architecture — I expect real fire-breathing hardware that leave today's top-of-the-line Power Mac G5s far behind."
