I am an avid linux user who is intrigued with apple's OS X.  

I am now considering purchasing another laptop - which may provide an excuse 
to get a feel of OS X. Of course there are lots of considerations, but R 
command file processing speed is a major factor. 

I know of many speed comparisons between G4/G3 and the various flavors of 
Pentiums, but more useful would be one specifically utilizing R.

Has anyone conducted such a test?
