What is the Fastest Windows XP Laptop?

The fastest laptop tested running Windows XP is… an Apple? What?!!? Yep. Check it out!

Gearlog Tests the MacBook Pro

“The two Mac desktops outran even blazing-fast single core systems, which typically do the Windows Media Encoder test in 10-13 minutes. We haven’t tested any other Intel Core Duo desktops, but the iMac competes well against a Polywell machine with a dual-core Athlon 64 X2 3800+, while the Mini and MacBook Pro are held back a little by their slower laptop hard drives. Predictably, all the Macs blow away the Shuttle XPC M1000, which has the previous generation single-core Pentium M processor. That system scored 16 minutes on Windows Media Encoder, and took 2:52 to complete the Photoshop script.”

So, again I ask, folks: “Should I buy a MacBook Pro?” What to do?
