    i'm thinking about picking up an 800 MHz ibook, but would really love it if someone who has one can run the XBench benchmarking app and post the results.

    get the free app here

    anyone? thanks!

    if i get my lazy ass up and buy an additional DIMM, then it's probably going to be 384 MB, maybe 640. in any case, i will post results as soon as i get my 800/12.1/AP/Combo :D

    awesome. thanks for posting that.

    it trounces my pbook g3/400 in every category. its overall score was 30.66.

    i think the ibook is finally fast enough for me to justify the purchase.

    holy cow.

    for those who don't know, XBench's reference machine is an 867 MHz g4/pmac, with a score of 100.

    One thing...does XBench take advantage of dual CPU's?

    so the 800 g3 ibook is only slightly faster in overall score than a 400 g4 tibook?

    that doesn't sound right, but the 800 ibook at $1300 is certainly cheaper than a refurbished tibook 400 g4 would be now, so i guess one could look at it that way

    i wonder how the 800 g3 ibook would bench if it had the 640 MBs of RAM?

    I think it does because on the dualies it mentions two CPUs (6th & 7th line)

    Yeah, though I don't know much about macs yet, it maybe my memory holding it back. I plan to upgrade but not for a few week so hopefully someone else with one and more ram will let us know:)

    Here is my Imac 800G4 15" w/1024mb

    over all score for the imac was 75.33

    I have a new ibook 800 14" w/640mb that i just got and will post the results later. I was unable to copy the text from the results page...is there a trick? If I can't copy/paste when I do the ibook i'm assuming the first item that says results is the important figure here.

    Here are the results for the Ibook 800 w/640 megs of ram

    Overall score was 62.07 with the unit plugged in. Looks to be just shy of a Ti 667 w/512! Not bad for $1600.

    Please use the CODE ...

    You guys want edit and use the {code} text {/code} for this stuff to make it easier to read - except replace the { with the square brackets [

    Makes it much easier to read.

    Of course a mod stopping by and doing it won't hurt either (hint).
