Mac-ers, this is your chip

Anandtech has benchmarked a Yonah sample against an Athlon x86-64. Why should you care? Well, Yonah is probably the chip that Apple will be using for it's Intel-based machines, so you may want to cozy up with the review a bit and bond with it's stats. The benchmarks have another important meaning: they give credence to all the rumors flying about that Apple will be launching it's first Macintel product in January.

Yonah is a dual-core 2.0Ghz processor and should be a good match for OS X. It doesn't beat out AMD's Athlon dual-core 2.0Ghz processor, but it should consume a lot less power, which will be save your battery life as well as prevent lap burns.
