Core i7 iMac Outperform Mac Pro

Apple_2009_iMac_Top_BW

Macworld benchmarks show the top-of-the-line 2.8 GHz Core i7 27-inch iMac besting 2.66 GHz quadcore and 2.26 GHz octacore Mac Pros. I used to like to tinker. Now I like the best minds and manufacturing to do it for me. The top-end iMac costs about the same as the 2.66 GHz quadcore Mac Pro at around US$2500 a piece, but with the iMac you get a beautiful 27-inch IPS LCD with a ton of pixels (2560 x 1440) and you don’t have to deal with a bunch of cables. My guess is that Apple will unveil Core i9-based Mac Pros soon. Source: Macworld via Wired
