    its not great but it isn't horrible either. My ibook 900 640 can't get more than a 65 so there you see the G4 advantage

    It's typical for a 1GHz mac. I've seen higher, but mostly I've seen high 70s.

    I typically score in the mid to high 90's with my 1Ghz 12" PB. One of the big factors in lowering the laptops scores in an Xbench test is the hard drive performance. The graphics cards don't help all that much either.

    For comparison purposes, I just got 132 on my 1.25 GHz G4, 1 GB memory. I didn't bother to quit everything first.

    thats real low for a 1Ghz machine...my 933 scores around 120 (115-125) but then again it has a 2MB L3 cache. i wonder if it makes that big of a difference?

    i was getting that also, when the machine was new, but lately (as my hard drive has become very full and fragmented) i'm getting only 115 anymore. it will soon be time to do a complete reinstall of the system.

    yes it does, but more importantly, because you have a desktop, you have vastly superior hard drives in there - compared to a laptop. if the disk test gets 50 in laptop and 150 in desktop, there's a big enough difference in there alone.

    but the L3 cache, man, that's great for the G4 cpu. without it the cpu is not fed with data fast enough so the cpu will idle while it waits for data. L3 eliminates this bottleneck almost completely.
