    If you want to, post what you fold with and you average output per day.

    Mine is as followed

    G4 733MHZ
    Athlon XP 2200
    Athlon XP 2400

    2 eMacs added when school starts

    Production = 500+ a week with normal use, 650+ when 24/7

    iMac 800 MHZ.

    -x Points per day.

    x = Points

    Therefore I lose points per day, meh, its more like 4.2 Points/day...

    For one computer... its below average.

    I hope to be getting my friends on it soon, but... they are hard to convince.

    BTW.

    Congrads to mc68k With a total os 200,000+ Points!

    I've just started foldinf and I'm using an 800mhz iMac (512K). I have no idea how many points per day, since it's not running all of the time.

    My 1 GHz G4 iMac is on, folding, 24/7, but I don't know how many points I'm getting or anything.

    Couple of 2.x Ghz p4's funnily enough one does at twice as many points as the other but since the fast one is "my" computer I am not to worried about the other. A 800 and Dual 500 G4 towers do their bit as well. All going well the 800 will get replaced with a 1.6 g5 in september and the 500 was planned to replaced 6 month ago. I want my 15'' al pbook!

    Edit updated signature, hmm or mb not.

    Oh well folded 1802 pts as of right now:)

    I'm on my 700 MHz FP iMac....and that's it for right now. I was also folding on my friend's 933 G4 Tower, but he stopped it. Dunno why, either.

    I fold with:
    One Dual 867 (running on both processors :D )
    One iMac 15" 800
    One iBook 12" 500 (being taken out of folding service :( )
    One iMac 400 DV (being taken out of folding service :( )



    I need a G5!:D

    Well I just wanted to chime in and say I am finally folding! I gave up waiting until I can get a new PowerBook running OS X (why isn't there an OS 9 client!) and just installed it on our Dell...

    2.8 GHz Pentium 4 HT
    800 MHz FSB
    512 megs DDR 400 RAM
    nVidia FX 5200 64 meg RAM
    Mediacom high speed Internet (cable modem)
    Connected to the internet and working 24/7, let's see if I can make a difference :)

    (I hope my dad doesn't see the task tray icon and get confused...whenever something about the computer confuses him he gets angry...I hacked into his user account to add it to his startup folder, too...heh)

    That should have some nice output, probably about 75 points a day at least. We need more users, if we get about 15 new PCs folding, thats an extra 1K a day for the team.

    I think I may sneak folding onto my sister's 1.6 GHz Compaq P4 since she's in school right now...

    All right, I now have both the family Dell and my sister's Compaq set up for folding 24/7. The combined MHz is about 4.4 GHz between the two. I wonder if she'll even notice...I set the icon to "always hide when active" ;) Now I just have to wait until I get a new PowerBook to have that set up for folding.

    Thanks! I feel so stealthy, heh. It's amazing how easy it is to gain full privilege under *any* account on Windows XP...I just went through the guest account, went to control panels->user accounts->delete password (windows lets you pop in a floppy disk and save the password before deletion) on "x" account and then logged into both my parent's accounts and did the same with my sister's account...then pop the floppy back in and loaded their passwords back so they didn't know I was under their accounts. Wow, I'd love to be the security team for Microsoft...seems like it's a no work job to me!

    Not too sure...I will have to see what computers everyone has when I get back to school and see if I can get my roommates to start folding. I cannot even imagine the kind of work we could accomplish for the team if I have half the floor of my dorm hall folding!

    My computers...

    Dual 1 Ghz G4 (2 instances)
    2 3.06 HT Ghz Dells (2 instances each)
    2 1.6 Ghz Dells
    3 painfully slow 350 Mhz PII

    somewhere around 1700 pts per week

    I must say, this folding is pretty addicting. I keep checking on the Dell to see it's progress...about 30 percent of a 500 WU so far. I wish I could have saved the Gateway we sent to the computer recycler, the HD was bad, but a cheap swapout might have made it a decent folding machine with a 1 GHz AMD. My dad is looking at replacing his old 200 MHz work PC with a new computer, maybe I can convince him to keep that going for folding, too.

    I fold with my:
    Power Mac G4/533
    iBook 500

    PowerBook 12" when I'm not using the battery (folding makes the fan turn on and run continously - cuts battery time in half).

    My Power Mac completes a work unit in about a week - is that normal? Is there optimization to be done? My iBook takes about twice as long (about 10-14 days).

    Well, the Dell has been folding since this morning and it's still only aroun 40% complete with a work unit, so that seems about normal...from what I read on the FAQ section, some of these can take a day or two (or even more) with the bigger work units.

    Started folding again on my 500 Mhz iBook I'm about 40% through a 500 wu protein and have been folding a week and a half.

    Yeah...the 500 wu protein I am working on is taking forever and a day to complete, but stick with it!

    All three of my machines are doing the P639_L939 series. I think that's good for something like 70 points each when they finish.

    Sweet...the Dell has been working on the 500 wu since around 11 am and it's about halfway done now. I can't wait to actually see some points as a "O" status is a bit sad to look at. I have my sister's Compaq about 37% through with a 250 wu, too.
