Would you say a molcajete always gives superior results than a normal mortar and pestle?

I was looking at the molcajete from Williams-Sonoma:

Im sure it makes better guacamole than normal mortars but I was thinking that it was too porous and might affect the flavor of a pesto. Plus im thinking a marble mortar would produce a superior pesto as well.
