MacBook Pro: fastest Vista notebook ever?

After our article last year on whether Apple notebooks are cheaper that Dells, I’m almost afraid to report on a piece of obvious fanboy bait like this. Then again, it’s not like I’m gonna keep a ticking time bomb of this caliber from you while the rest of the Internet eats it up. So here it is: PC World tested a slew of x86 laptops this year and decided to announce the best of the year, including which model ran Windows Vista the fastest. Guess what? The winner was the 17″ MacBook Pro with a 2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo. “The fastest Windows Vista notebook we’ve tested this year–or for that matter, ever–is a Mac,” PC World writes “Not a Dell, not a Toshiba, not even an Alienware.” Now, before you shout out “Bogus!” let me get to the specifics of the test: PC World used WorldBench 6 Beta 2 to determine which machine came out on top and the MacBook Pro scored a benchmark score of 88–just one point higher than Gateway’s E-265M. Got something to say? Sound off in the comments but please folks, try to keep it civil, eh?
