    for those of you who don't know what folding is, go here... http://folding.stanford.edu/

    sorry it has nothing to do with free beer, it is a program that uses your cpu to process proteins and help cure many diseases. come and please join the macrumors team (#3446) and help us! ever little computer helps, i have an ibook and have been working my way up in the list the last month or so.

    just think of all those nights your computer sits idle on your desk...it could be curing diseases!!!

    maybe a good use for the duelies. I wonder if the stats include a duel mac as two cpu's... I take it that a duel cpu mac could compute twice as fast as a single in this case as two threads could be used each computing something else. It kinda sucks that on the news page the number of mac users are going down while both the linux and windows are increasing...come on guys...
