MacBook: 1, Dual G5: 0

I knew the Intel Macs were fast, but I didn't expect my (low end) MacBook to put my Dual G5 PowerMac to shame in a task that's both CPU and IO intensive.

I timed the compilation time for a mid-size C/C++ project using xcodebuild, and here are my results:

So, the MacBook compiles about 40% faster than the Dual G5.

That's pretty awesome.
