My sempron at 1.6 loaded applications faster than my schools mac mini's at like 1.4 or 1.5.. Thats all I know (and it was a significant amount of time.. like 10 seconds.. Macs in my experience are slow..)

Meh I agree, But a few times in video class I was lucky enough to use a G5 dual processor machine and man is it fast! It's crazy looking as well! Two giant fans going really slow and you can see the actual blade going around and around. Mac's in my opinion are purely for asthetics, it's a statement like hey look at me I have money, kinda like an ipod In the end, More processing power for folding at home is always good, so good work!

Thats probably because your school loaded them with tons of security software and stuff.
Very nice!

Back when I was in 8th place I had a Video editing mac running F@H and it wasnt that fast. I think it was almost as fast as the PC running next to it. The PC was a williamette P4 2ghz. And the MAC just sat there 90% of the time. The PC was used for Mid day Gaming by some of the guys. I honestly think that the order of OS is XP first, Linux Second, OSX Third. I haven't had any other OS's foldiong other than that. I do think that the Mac was better at running gromacs cores than the tinker cores.

Dude the cheapest mac mini at 1.25GHZ alone is flying. Why not get a 1.25GHZ model?

No real folding content. Sounds more to me like mac vs pc. Please keep your posts relevant.
