    Interesting, it's really not much better than my 1.25 Ghz 15 inch PowerBook. My results are some above, some below.

    Actually, that's significantly worse than stoid's 1.25, not to mention tons worse than my 1.0 eMac. What's going on here?

    MacBoy, did you quit all background apps, or just minimize/hide/close their windows? That can make a BIG difference.

    Something's fishy when my 1ghz Rev.A iBook G4 beat the top scoring 1.5 Powerbook at the Xbench comparison site - In processor scores! The powerbook then went on to beat my computer at various other tasks, but not by as much as it should have. :confused: Let's hope that this isn't another boo boo from Apple. :crosses fingers:

    There's definitely something wrong. My 1GHz 15" PowerBook (Ti) does better than that! See the link:

    http://ladd.dyndns.org/xbench/merge.xhtml?doc1=58505

    I got a 94.37 - 15" 1GHz, 2x256 MB RAM, Radeon 9000 Mobility 64MB VRAM, 4200 RPM HD....

    Your build number is weird... Mine is 7F44 (final 10.3.3 release). You have 7G43. Special version of OS X?

    Yeah, something is up with those scores. My 1GHz 12" PB gets 99.87. Do you have the processor setting in the Energy Saver preference pane set to "Highest"?

    Maybe it's a problem with xBench. After all, it has been know to report incorrectly on instances. And the G4 was never expected to pass 1.42 GHz (which was already super-overclocked and really hot).

    I can only imagine that the energy saver is on "Automatic," instead of "Highest Performance." Here are my scores from my iBook G4...97.93 overall. http://ladd.dyndns.org/xbench/merge.xhtml?doc1=54987

    I also find it strange that there is a different build on the latest Powerbooks...Apple - What are you doing?
