I am on MAC & all my Machine's run on OSX LION 10.7.5 I am currently run "John" on an MacBookPro 17' 2011 ( last one) I7 /SSD / 8Go / GC ATI M6750 1Go On the other side, i have an MAC PRO Quad XEONS @ 3ghz with 16 Go & SSD In Pure CPU usage the MacbokkPro I7 beat the MacPro & i can say in GPU also ( cause i have an Quadro on MacPro not working well on that process ) But i agreed , for an intensive use an Desktop is recomembed. My 2 cent's anyway, Regards, Donovan 2012/11/21, groszek <necro@...icon.pl>: > On 11/21/2012 06:37 PM, Richard Miles wrote: >> Hi >> >> I'm considering buying a new laptop and I want to do a decision based on >> specs to crack passwords, in other words, I need a real animal to crack >> passwords, I now that laptops are not as powerful as desktops, but I hope >> to find something really good. >> >> I looked at AllienWare and Macbook PRO and I got a bit frustrated.
