    I'm curious to see how our older Macs pony up against each other! Post your Geekbench results here! Download Link

    Geekbench Score*: 336. Specs: iBook G4/1.07GHz/512MB RAM/40GB HD/Combo

    For Comparison: My original Core Duo MacBook scores a 2600.

    For reference: a white eeePC (900MHz/1GB RAM) Scores a 468.

    *Note: You don't need to create a profile if you don't want, just post your specs and score! :)

    If anyone has a Wallstreet you've stuck Tiger on I'd like to see that one in particular!

    When I get home, I'll post you a B&W G3 and a 1.5 GHz upgraded G4 Digital Audio.

    And, if I get ambitious, an iMac G3/600.

    (And if I get *REALLY* ambitious, over the weekend I'll force 10.4 onto either a beige G3 or an iMac rev a/233 MHz.)

    I'm such a luddite - if a Mac runs Geekbench, it's not old enough for my collection!

    Haha nice. Too bad they don't make a 7.6.1 or 9.1 version of Geekbench! :D

    Sounds like fun!!! Can't wait to see the results. :D

    Alright, first up:
    Power Mac G4 Digital Audio, upgraded with 1.46 GHz G4; 1.5 GB RAM.

    Score: 851.

    The iMac G3-233 will be a bit tougher, it only has a CD-ROM drive, and is presently running Mac OS 8.6. Getting Tiger on there will be a challenge. (Especially since it isn't officially supported!) I'll edit this post in half an hour or so with B&W G3 (w/ G4 upgrade) numbers.

    edit: Alright, next up, Blue & White G3, upgraded with 500 MHz G4; 256 MB RAM.

    Score: 308. (Note: Primate Labs says you need at least 512 MB of RAM, this system is at half that. Merely adding more RAM may significantly increase that score.)

    Score 269

    Score 338

    Can't submit iMacs scores - both are not connected to Internet ATM.

    I'll post Clamshell 466 score later.

    Edit:

    iBook G3 Clamshell SE 466 MHz, 576MB RAM

    Score 222

    Just got a friend's Quicksilver up and running! Specs are Dual 1.0GHz/1.5GB RAM/80GB HDx2 : Score is 860.

    Update: Just installed 10.5.8 on a friend's 12" PowerBook G4 that was running 10.2! Specs are 867MHz/640MB RAM/40GB HD/Combo: Score is 494

    The beige PowerMacs and older iMacs are interesting... wonder what it would take to score a 100?

    AFAIK you're SOL if not running OS X. Start a thread with MacBench or Speedometer scores!

    My PowerBook G4 DVI scored 429.
    667MHz 1GB 30GB 10.4.11. I think the 1MB L3 helped.

    Another part of my old Mac collection scores:

    iMac G5 ALS 2.0, 2GB RAM - score 1096

    G4 MDD FW800 1.42@1.67 Dual CPU, 2GB RAM - score 1777

    Interesting things happened with this above. I get 2 other higher scores:
    1973 and 2253. Something is wrong Text Decompress test - compare scores in this section between those three results.
    Weird, maybe CHUD Tools and Nap which I'm using are messing up something?

    Odd. I have the 17" 1.67 HiRes model with 1.5GB RAM, and it scored 815. Guess that extra 512MB RAM makes a difference.

    My late 2009 Mini with the 2.26 and 4GB of RAM scored 3325. What a difference a few years makes. I had Firefox and iTunes running that time. I should retry with nothing else running and see what happens.

    I want to see some truly ghetto scores on here. Anyone have a beige 233MHz G3 they can squeeze 10.4 onto via XPostFacto? :)
