My Mac’s – MacBook Pro 4.1 vs MacBook Pro 5.1 with Benchmarks


So as some of you are aware, I purchased the new MacBook pro 5.1.  It is a sexy machine.  Now I never thought about this previously, but I’d like to compare this model to my previous one, the MacBook Pro 4.1. Starting with the MacBook Pro 4.1:

MacBook Pro 4.1:
CPU – intel i7 620M 2.66 Ghtz Arrandale with 4 MB on-chip L3 cache
               Scored a 2786 on the passmark benchmark test
GPU – nVidia GeForce GT 330M with 512MB of GDDR3 SDRAM
               Scored a 489 on the G3D Benchmark Test
RAM – 4 GB of 1066 MHz PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM
Screen – 15″
Storage – 500GB @ 5400 rpm

So that was my first mac, not a bad first impression… until…

MacBook Pro 5.1:
CPU – Intel i7 2720QM 2.2 Ghtz Sandy Bridge with 6 MB on-chip L3 cache
               Scored7186 on the passmark benchmark test
GPU – AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 1 GB GDDR5  SDRAM
               Scored a 1119 on the G3D Benchmark Test
RAM – 4GB of 1333 MHz PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM
Screen – 15″
Storage – 750GB @ 5400 rpm

Pretty damn good lads!    Well this time I was smart enough to use Boot Camp to put Windows on the machine, so I can enjoy the PC Games outside of work.

Guide: How to Raise Max Volume (Netbooks, Laptop, etc)


I like to watch movies and listen to music on my netbook computer — the ASUS EEEPC 1005HA-P with Windows XP. Often, external speakers are needed to get the volume loud enough since the speakers are so weak. Netbooks aren’t the only portable devices with this problem either. Laptops / Notebooks have it, as do some tablets / touch screen devices with built-in speakers. Regardless of the device, if you want to play a movie, TV show, song, etc. more loudly, then I recommend using a media player that lets you amplify the sound. I recommend Media Player Classic or VLC Player. Personally, I prefer MPC, as VLC doesn’t seem to play some as well (for me, anyway).
