ProTools Mac benchmarking - comparing model performance?
Is there such a benchmark test and resulting chart that compares the performance of ProTools on the different new Mac models?

The bottom line question: is it worth the extra money buying a Mac Pro over an iMac? How much boost in performance is there with an 8-core over the quad-core MacPro?

MacPro $3,397
Two 2.66GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon
2GB (4 x 512MB)
250GB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s
NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT 256MB (single-link DVI/dual-link DVI)
Apple Cinema Display (20" flat panel)

iMac $1,649
2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO with 256MB memory
2GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM - 2x1GB
320GB Serial ATA Drive
SuperDrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
20-inch glossy widescreen LCD
AirPort Extreme - Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR

Generic processor and memory performance test by "Geekbench"


Would like a similar chart benchmarking ProToolsLE. Am I the only one?
