Anyone had any experience of High Def Handbrake encodes on a current imac

Hi everyone, I am torn between upgrading my 2.16 C2D MBP to either a new 15" MBP or a mid to high end imac.

I don't really need the portability anymore since getting my ipad so the main uses will be streaming itunes, acting as a host for my iphone & ipad.

I have recently been ripping and converting my Blu Ray collection usinh handbrake to 720p for my ipad but the encodes are taking around 4 hours for a 90 minute movie (around 9fps)

What speed could I expect to get from the current gen products??
