How well do Apple’s Pro Apps run on the new 2012 Apple laptops? Is it time to trade in your Mac Pro for a MacBook Pro? For this test session, we chose Apple’s Aperture 3 and Motion 5.
Morgan notes that Quad-Core MacBook Pros can keep up with the Mac Pro, and that any Mac with at least four cores (eight with hyper-threading) can run Aperture’s CPU intensive tasks like Noise Ninja just as fast as the fastest Mac Pro, but that the Retina MacBook Pro was able to perform unrendered playback of the animated template very nearly at real-time speed – the first MacBook Pro in history to be able to do that, and the 2012 MacBook Pro (Retina and ‘normal’) performs on par with the best Mac Pro with the best graphics cards.
