Report Help With Mac???? in General Help Posted December 6, 2009 I am going to purchase my first Mac this week and I have a question. I am looking at the 21.5 inch iMac with a 3.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 8 GB of RAM. I have used PC's all my life and I currently have a laptop running Windows Vista with a 2.0 GHz Intel core 2 Duo processor plus my ancient desktop which I am replacing (it is using a Pentium 4 processor). So My question is: Will an Intel Core 2 Duo processor run faster, slower, or the same in a Mac as it does with the Windows OS?
