Hi Christian,

   all speeds scale up (compiling and running). In the coming week(s) I expect to get an iMac Duo (as trade in for our obsolete P4 based dev machines). Then I am also allowed to give benchmarks (the dev hardware was not completely optimized and we are not allowed to give the performance numbers). Just order you MacBook Pro ;-)
