    Basically, no, considering I get 39.52 on my iBook with 512MB RAM and 7 dashboard widgets, safari, and iChat.

    Wow, what the hell? I have an eMac 1.25 with 1GB RAM, and I get an xBench of around 138.

    Well, I redid it and put 7 widgets up, safari, and iChat..

    and got 40.27

    I would take the RAM out but I don't want to ruin my uptime + I don't have the screwdriver to open the RAM sheild

    You're better off comparing it with the other computers like yours at the xbench website. Its a decent score. The PB in my sig got a 44.something. keep in mind that score is a percentage of the standard set by a dual 2GHz Powermac.

    I think they've recalibrated since you got that score, unless your eMac is way faster than a Dual Processor Power Mac.

    Not anymore.. the new baseline for XBench 1.2 is 100 based on a dual 2GHz G5.

    My severely upgraded Quicksilver used to get a 161, now it gets a 51.65!
