Basically, no, considering I get 39.52 on my iBook with 512MB RAM and 7 dashboard widgets, safari, and iChat.

Well, I redid it and put 7 widgets up, safari, and iChat..

and got 40.27

I would take the RAM out but I don't want to ruin my uptime + I don't have the screwdriver to open the RAM sheild

Is this a good benchmark for an iBook G4 1.42GHz, 1.5GB... etc.. it's in my sig

Got a 40.27 score


I closed ALL dashboard widgets, no apps running...

here are the specs in pictures
You're better off comparing it with the other computers like yours at the xbench website. Its a decent score. The PB in my sig got a 44.something. keep in mind that score is a percentage of the standard set by a dual 2GHz Powermac.

Wow, what the hell? I have an eMac 1.25 with 1GB RAM, and I get an xBench of around 138.
I think they've recalibrated since you got that score, unless your eMac is way faster than a Dual Processor Power Mac.

Yeah they WAY redid it. My QS went from getting 148 to only 38 :D.

Not anymore.. the new baseline for XBench 1.2 is 100 based on a dual 2GHz G5.

My severely upgraded Quicksilver used to get a 161, now it gets a 51.65!
