Macworld: Black and White MacBooks Benchmark Differently

The differences are attributable to the hard drives being from different manufacturers; the 60 GB Seagate drive in the white MacBooks is faster at most tasks than the 80 GB Fujitsu drive in the black ones, despite the fact that both are running at 5,400 RPM. Other than the iPhoto importing test, however, the differences are pretty small.
