The latest MacBook Pro carries the model designation 9,1, whilst the 27-inch iMac is designated 13,2. Additionally, Best Buy has marked down its whole Mac range, which is another sign that Apple is poised to refresh their Mac line-up. How do the ivy Bridge-powered Mac's perform?

Well, the MacBook Pro model was powered by a Core i7-3820QM quad-core chip clocked in at 2.7GHz, and scored 12,252 on the Geekbench test. Versus the second-generation Core i7 MacBook Pro, this is a 17-percent performance boost. The 27-inch iMac running a desktop-class Ivy Bridge processor was clocked at 3.4GHz, but only scored 12,183 as it only had 4GB of RAM. This puts it 9-percent faster than the current Sandy Bridge-powered iMac.
