    P.S. Just because, I posted the lowest of my scores. The highest was in the mid-90 point range.

    Nice! :)

    Did you install the 5400RPM drive yourself, or did you buy it that way? Has it made things unbearably hot?

    I definitely need to get some RAM.

    I ordered it BTO from the Apple store the day it came out and doesn't seem to have any negatives that people worried about. The battery life is still in the 3 1/2 hour range and most of the time my PowerBook stays cold to the touch unless I am charging the battery or doing lots of heavy work, but it gets no hotter than my G3 ever did. As far as RAM, I hope to get a upgrade from Crucial once I get some Christmas money in a few months. :)

    Powerbook G5's machine is well past that magic 100 level of Xbench. This is desktop-level performance. Very pleased to see these numbers!

    If you compare the results so far, it's obvious that the 5400RPM is making a big difference. Those read-write times are MUCH higher than mine. Hmmm... maybe I should consider an upgrade?

    ah, very glad to see those scores on the new 12". I'm trading up from an ibook 900 to that model, and I was worried that the performance jump wouldn't be that big... but I get in the low 40s on my ibook, so 85 for the low score looks great to me!

    Hard drive speed has always been the bottleneck with PowerBooks. Notebooks in general, it seems...

    Yeah, the HD on my G3 PowerBook was a real snail, so when I saw the option to upgrade to the 5400 for only $112, I took it and it really is pretty nice. I know it isn't as fast as a 7200 rpm, but for a laptop, it really flies and it's virtually silent compared to my G3, too. I did a search and found that my xbench isn't that far off compared to a 1.6 GHz G5 or a dual G4, either, so all in all, I feel pretty good. I cannot wait to see what will be coming when the G5 PowerBooks make an appearance.

    Hehe. Nice typo! 1.6Ghz G4. LOL. Like Motorola could even dream that high.

    (I know you meant G5, but it struck me as funny.)

    Oops! I changed it...yeah, it won't be for another 2 years at least before Moto comes out with a 1.6 GHz chip! By then I am sure IBM will have G3 chips at 3 GHz!

    Me neither, it looks like Apple wasn't lying when they said to expect a 30-40% jump in performance with the new G4 chips. All we need now is a score for a 17" to see how the whole line competes.

    why would you feel bad about your scores? You can hardly expect the same from the 12" as from the high end 15", especially considering the 5400 RPM HD that PowerbookG5 has. I think the new 12" did quite well!

    I also noticed that the Ti 1Ghz has a gig of RAM while your 12" has only 256... that would make some difference as well, wouldn't it?

    The 12" got 119 points in cpu, and the 1ghz Tibook got 111 points, so the new cpu is faster per mhz it seems.
    That's really good.

    Anybody have scores from the 15" with the regular 4200 RPM? Also, what about some 17"ers with different configs.

    Not exactly like my DP 1.25 (135.49), but a huge improvement over the iBook 466 it replaced (30.25). I've noticed that the palmrest temperature is not very warm, but the underside does get hot.
    It actually plays Ghost Recon well at roughly 30fps (1024x768x32 with Mipmap @ .08). This is good for such an intensive game. My DP 1.25 with alot more RAM and a Radeon 9000 (64MB) gets abut 60fps (1600x1200x32 with Mipmap @.09).
    Virtual PC runs great too! Something the iBook just couldn't do very well at all.
    In any case, I love this great little machine!
