Completely unscientific Amazon EC2 benchmarks

Performed on the us-west cluster on spot instances using Geekbench

  • m1.small - 1497
  • m1.large - 2897
  • MacBook Pro i5 520M 2.4GHz - 4728
  • Core Solo 1.66GHz - 1562
  • Core Duo 1.60GHz - 1894

Honestly, the only thing good about m1.small and m1.large is spot instance pricing and loads of RAM. Otherwise GoGrid (which I've used myself) and Rackspace Cloud Servers seem to be much better
