In the spirit of good old-fashioned competition, let's have all the new iBook and PowerBook owners post their Xbench scores. Winner gets umm... the fastest computer on the block... which they already would have I suppose... ANYWAY, I'll start it off, please include computer specs so others can see the source of the score. Mine can be found in my signature.

Score: 136.77

Lol, I got 128 score in xbench with my 15" pb 1.25ghz 9600 mobility.
Does the new maxed out 15" only get about 8 points more?! :eek:

96.78 on my base system 12 rev b powerbook, so basically the minimum powerbook you could buy.

Would be very interested to see what the new ones clock in at!

I tried out my 500MHz G3 Pismo for comparison... and got a whopping 39.82 :D

The only thing it did fairly well on were the disk read/write tests, which isn't surprising since I have a newer 5400RPM drive in it.

Time to upgrade .... :o

67.92 on iBook G4 800mhz, 384MB RAM
but this is with Adium squeaking away in the background along with 14 other apps... I'll try it later without anything else and see.

My PB 15" 1.5Ghz w/ 128vram and 512 ram ( 2 chips ) scored 126.93 on highest perfomance and 98 on DVD playback. Big difference between energy settings.

That just about does it for me. I have a feeling this will be my next computer. But, can't order till July as I am on vacation for most of June and need to wait to check the finances.

But, I am now sold on the 12" Powerbook.

My 1ghz 12" Rev B scored a 102.6 with 256mb Ram

Puzzled why my same unit with 512mb ram clocked 89.9?

Was set to the performance setting.

Yeah, I'm wondering the same thing. I've never heard of a stock 12" PB scoring higher than 100. Its hard enough for a 12" PB with 512MB or 768 MB of RAM to score that high. It may do so barely.

I know that I always score average for my rev B 12" 1GHz Powerbook with 512 MB of RAM. With my settings at HIGHEST = 98.00

With my setting at AUTOMATIC = 88.77


Can people with new Powerbooks also post their battery life when doing typical things like using iTunes, MS Word, and Safari?? I'm just curious as to whether people are actually getting higher battery life with their new PB's. The 12" PB can supposedly get 5+ hours, but the capacity of the new battery isn't even too much higher. :confused:
