In order of poorest to best performance numbers:
N.B that the last one is my live keyboard playback rig machine - it probably has had stuff turned off in the BIOS to improve performance (I forget; it's been awhile).
But I did not run the script I normally run when using it that (pretty ruthlessly) shuts down every last service that's not needed to run Cantabile + Ivory :), not even
sure Live would run in the face of all the stuff I like to shut down (that's an experiment for another day). So the machine was run with no special optimizations other than what may have been done at BIOS-level in the past; I left wireless radios on, no bluetooth on anybody, antivirus software still going, etc.

Just as a final note: the Macbook Pro is actually my machine for running Live, but...I'm not too surprised the Lenovo W520 beats it (if a 4 point difference is significant); the Lenovo is pretty much a snarling beast. The first Lenovo actually should have won, because it's hypothetically a faster machine (it's a software development laptp), but again, probably BIOS-level optimizations on the last one. Or maybe it's the RME soundcard? Don't know, but...the Mac had a Babyface, yet got a poorer score than the Lenovo using built-in sound hardware (I think the test specification of 512 samples kind of is intended to equalize out the impact of audio hardware).

No idea, but these are the numbers I got; I ran the test multiple times; peak numbers are reported.

1) Ableton Live CPU Meter % 25
2) Laptop/Desktop? Make/Model? Mac Mini
3) Operating System? OSX Mountain Lion
4) Ableton Live version? Live 9 Demo
5) CPU Make, Model, and Speed? Intel Core i7 2.3 Ghz
6) Amount of Ram? 16 Gbytes
7) Soundcard (and driver version if you know it)? Built-in Core Audio driver
8) Hard Disk Drive Speed (if you know)? most likely 5400 rpm
9) Number of playback tracks? 8

1) Ableton Live CPU Meter % 19
2) Laptop/Desktop? Make/Model? 4 year old homemade Windows box.

5) CPU Make, Model, and Speed? Intel Core i7 920 2.67 Gyz
6) Amount of Ram? 16 G
7) Soundcard (and driver version if you know it)? device mgr says 'ATI'. I have no idea, just whatever we built this box with.
