    I know that if you don't finish by the deadline date Standford won't be able to use it for the project, so I was wondering if there was any point in helping with the project if our computer isn't fast enough to finish by the deadline?

    Depends.... stanford can't use the results, but if your folding to be part of Mac Rumors team folding, then we still get the points towards our total to move p the rankings and fight off the knights that say ni! I'm in the same vote...my computer misses the deadline by about a month or so each time :(

    Thanks for your replies :)
    I'm running a PowerBook G3, 333, so I probably won't be able to finish by my deadline either, but I'll be getting a new laptop hopefully in a month or two, so that should be helpful.

    Im donating my DP800 to the team...

    I was going to sell it when my DP2 G5 arrives but Im gonna keep the G4 in a closet to fold :)

    Im also scouring work to find all the suitable Macs to help in the effort...

    The more the better I say...keep folding!

    I just started folding on July 1st for the MacRumors team and so far I have contributed 17 WUs (706 points). I am using my three P4 2GHz machines. I don't have a Mac yet, but I will be getting an updated 12" PowerBook (hopefully 1GHz), and a G5 XServe when they become available.

    I see how many points I have contributed in the past week and the number of team members we have folding, and I think that our output should be much, much higher. I wish we could convice all of the team member to start up their folding clients and donate their CPU cycles to a good cause.

    Maybe a link on the main page to the folding site would help. Possibly, a folding team theme song.

    Everyone start folding!
