IMAC 21.5" 2.7GHz Does anyone has benchmarks?

Well, I'm not a apple fanboy, but I do have a friend that is. I would love to see some benchmarks, to compare it to another pcs. (manly to a fx8320 with a gtx660)
I'm really tired of his annoying conversation of "Apple is better than every thing because...." etc

thank you
(and if you know things about ios vs android I would love to know them either)

    So what type of benchmarks are you looking for? CPU? GPU?

    The CPU that's in those systems is about equivalent to a desktop i3-2120. And the GPU is a laptop GPU, I think the current model uses a GT640, which really isn't that great of a GPU.

    About the sucky GPU I knew already (since I have a laptop with the gt510m). Now that about the CPU is amazing to know... thanks. I'm sure that with almost half of what he spent I'll get WAYYY more performance.
    Again, thanks for the help =D

    No problem. Even a $1200 PC will completely destroy a twice-as-expensive iMac on any benchmark you can throw at it.
