More 2011 MacBook Pro Test Results

See yesterday’s comments about my review of the 2011 Apple MacBook Pro quad-core 2.3GHz.

The 2011 MacBook Pro ROCKS. I’m astounded to see these gains that are well into Mac Pro territory. While I don’t have a 2.8GHz quad-core Mac Pro to test, it appears that the MacBook Pro might even be a little faster than that model under some circumstances. Be sure to install a fast solid state drive (Apple’s is not so fast), so that the CPUs can run at full speed, with minimal delays for disk actvitiy.

Where the MacBook Pro fails miserably is when tasks require more than its meager 8GB of memory— then everything comes to a crawl, as it will with any Mac with too little memory. But most users will do just fine with 8GB.

Coming on top of last year’s big gains with the 2010 Intel Core i7 Macbook Pro, the advances add up to a doubling of performance over the 2009 model.

I’ve posted additional results from PTGui Pro, Canon Digital Photo Professional, and Phaseone CaptureONE Pro.

More results coming today.
