    Did you close all open apps before running it?

    That's definitely low. My eMac (specs in sig) scored 133, I believe. I've heard that they aren't accurate, though.

    mine changes all the time.. it's ranged from 187 to 113.. (G5) It's really bizarre. I wouldn't go by xbench personally.

    Did you have your settings on Highest Performance..
    When i had my 1ghz + 1Gb of ram on my PB...
    I got about 100...
    Change your settings to Highest Performance in energy settings and rerun the test.
