2012 MacBook Pro vs 2010 Mac Pro

From testing a bench testing a current MBP against the "most recent" Mac Pro tower:

If apps like Aperture and Motion are your "bread and butter," you can conclude from this test session that the 2012 MacBook Pro (Retina and 'normal') performs on par with the best Mac Pro with the best graphics cards.

While the test is extremely limited in scope (only Aperture and Motion 5), it does point to the fact that Apple if it's not abandoning this market as CEO Tim Cook claims, then 2013 can't come soon enough! These towers are not defensible!
