I am *very* interested in getting one of these new MacBook Pros if  
Steve Jobs' claims of its speed are true. He claims that the 1.83 GHz  
MacBook is 4 times faster than the current 1.67 GHz PowerBook. Given  
that I have 1.5 GHz PowerBook, will I see the sort of speed increases  
claimed by Jobs when typesetting TeX or will it only scale with clock  
speed, that is, it will only be 1.83/1.67 times faster?

Thank you for helping me make my decision. :-)
