Workstation benchmarks have shown there to be very little difference performance-wise between Mac OS X and Windows 7. When you are working with high-end components such as i5s and SSDs the OS choice is far from being a bottleneck. While you can say certain tasks would be faster on one platform it needs to be understood that there also exists tasks that are faster on the other platform as well. Also it should be understood that some of these tasks only have a difference of a fraction of a percentage. The idea that Macs are faster at everything is just a marketing gimmick (a rather successful one at that.)
