    43.41 on my Rev. D 15" Powerbook - 1.5Ghz, 1.5GB RAM (w/ Adium running and connected, iTunes running but paused, and Firefox, Address Book, Dashboard, Preview and a couple other small apps open.

    I'm going to try with nothing running but Xbench and see how much difference there is, then I'll post here.

    EDIT: 44.46 with nothing but Finder and Dashboard running. btw, I am running OS 10.4.5 if it matters. :)

    My PowerBook got 45.61

    Just wish i knew what it all meant.

    I compared it to about 100 other PowerBook scores, and mine was third fastest.

    Sometimes 15 points higher than the same machine with 2GB of RAM.

    Cool.
    Good to know this G4 is as good as some G5's.

    Rich.

    If you haven't done it already you can change the processor performance under System Preferences / Energy Saver / Options to Highest. Personally I don't worry about anything Xbench says it is a complete joke, every point release update to Tiger my score has gone down. Also see my comment above about changing video cards. :rolleyes:

    Yeah it was fun watching the jump in frame rates in games, and noticing how smooth things like expose worked but then Xbench told me the card sucked. :D

    I always leave mine on Automatic, I just set it on Highest and got a 98.34.

    But, I agree, Xbench is worthless. There's no consistency whatsoever.

    I wonder what my iBook would get. ;)

    hmm does setting it to "highest" affect performance in any way? my score went up from 57.51 to 58.38 (whoopee) but will my computer be faster now?

    Yes. If you can actually tell though is another story.

    Impossible. You must be leaving out some tests. The new iMacs get killed on things like the UI test.

    I have a 2.0Ghz iMac Core Duo. On a full test I score around a 64.

    If I run it without the UI test I score a 101.

    I'm sorry, but I'm not lying. :) 113. Yes, another time it read 111, but I did get a 113+. I never leave out tests because that is cheating.

    Now my Powerbook does get a measly score. 30s or 40s I think.

    I think this link will show my results:

    Mind posting a link to your test results, so I can see?

    Mines the iMac.

    Did you turn off Quartz BeamSync? I heard that makes all the difference in the UI test -- turning the Core Duo scores from a 30 like mine, to the 200-300 range like yours..

    I'll post my results when I get back to my iMac..
