The guys over at Bare Feats have put Apple’s latest MacBook Pros to the test, and verdict is in. These machines are crazy fast.
With new quad-core Sandy Bridge processors in the 15- and 17-inch models, coupled with faster RAM and better GPUs, just about everything on the new notebooks is quicker than before.
This sums it up pretty well:
The fastest 2011 13? MacBook Pro runs faster than the fastest 2010 17-inch MacBook Pro.
Since the iMac and the MacBook Pro are very similar in architecture, I imagine that these types of numbers will show up on the desktop side of things before long.
