Jesse Stroik sends word of another PC-Mac shootout from aapltalk.com. This time, they're making specious comparisons between Mac and PC laptops. I bet you can guess who wins.
As Jesse noted:
Of course, he rates the G4 667 much higher than the 1.2ghz Mobile P3.Heh. I'm not sure what to think about that.
I think part of the problem may lie with him not listing the L1 cache on the P3 as "on chip". Now, I'm a computer science major and not an ECE major, but I've really never heard modern processors having "off die" L1 cache.
Now, Charles over at aapltalk.com is a stand-up guy, even when he's being very wrong about things. But this again looks like typical Macolyte fare: No Athlon 4-based latops (or Durons) were compared. Windows XP gets six points; Mac OS X gets nine. And so on.
The PC laptops all have absoultely amazing high-density LCDs at 1400x1040 or 1600x1200, but the Mac has a lowly 1152x768 resolution. The difference on on his points system? Half a point.
The Titanium Mac laptops are, for what they are, undeniably cool. But please.
