Performance question: Macbook Pro 2.66Ghz i7 vs. Mac Pro 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon

Hi there, I need a machine to do some heavy raw image editing on Adobe Lightroom.
I am debating whether to buy a new Macbook Pro 2.66Ghz i7, or a 2year old Mac Pro 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon, which would be about half the price of the Macbook.
Each have pros & cons for me in related to their form factor, but how would they compare in pure performance terms...?
Thanks for any advice.
