Tim,

Since the Mathematica kernel is pretty much identical 
on all platforms it makes almost no toolbox calls at 
all (and then only for file I/O). The performance, or 
lack of it, of the MacOS on Power Macs makes almost no 
difference to the performance of the Mathematica
kernel on Power Macintoshes.
