noht*, how much memory will you have in it when you run the tests?

if i get my lazy ass up and buy an additional DIMM, then it's probably going to be 384 MB, maybe 640. in any case, i will post results as soon as i get my 800/12.1/AP/Combo :D

awesome. thanks for posting that.

it trounces my pbook g3/400 in every category. its overall score was 30.66.

i think the ibook is finally fast enough for me to justify the purchase.

so the 800 g3 ibook is only slightly faster in overall score than a 400 g4 tibook?

that doesn't sound right, but the 800 ibook at $1300 is certainly cheaper than a refurbished tibook 400 g4 would be now, so i guess one could look at it that way

i wonder how the 800 g3 ibook would bench if it had the 640 MBs of RAM?

Yeah, though I don't know much about macs yet, it maybe my memory holding it back. I plan to upgrade but not for a few week so hopefully someone else with one and more ram will let us know:)

Here is my Imac 800G4 15" w/1024mb

over all score for the imac was 75.33

I have a new ibook 800 14" w/640mb that i just got and will post the results later. I was unable to copy the text from the results page...is there a trick? If I can't copy/paste when I do the ibook i'm assuming the first item that says results is the important figure here.

Here are the results for the Ibook 800 w/640 megs of ram

Overall score was 62.07 with the unit plugged in. Looks to be just shy of a Ti 667 w/512! Not bad for $1600.

One thing...does XBench take advantage of dual CPU's?
You guys want edit and use the {code} text {/code} for this stuff to make it easier to read - except replace the { with the square brackets [

Makes it much easier to read.

Of course a mod stopping by and doing it won't hurt either (hint).
