The MBP may have performed nearly as well but it lost to everything non-Apple. As I said in my last post, the Windows notebooks performed better, and the links you provided prove just that. When a sports team wins by 1 point it is still a win.
It doesn't matter if CNet is biased or not as most non-Mac sites don't particularly care for Macs. Benchmarks don't lie. They know no bias.
Why would I want to buy a notebook with a gimped video card? I have to go out of my way (probably voiding the warranty) to get it up to par as the same card in a Windows-based notebook... and I pay more at that. Not worth it.
I find it hilarious the Macbook beats out other notebooks (with slower CPU's mind you) in running a Photoshop script, and that makes it the fastest XP notebook
