does the rendering software you want to use favor mac or pc? Is it only available on 1 or the other? Rendering is a broad term.

Software won't favor an os. The 3930k is 6 cores @ 3.2ghz while the macbook is a newer gen quad core @ 2.4 or 2.7. The newer architecture doesn't make up for 2 less cores and that much less ghz.

There's no reason to ever, ever purchase a laptop for rendering purposes. Go with the desktop instead.
