Choose from Low-Temp or Extreme Performance!

  • Our 1.67 - 1.75 options deliver roughly the same power consumption.... with more speed.
  • The 1.92 and 2.0 GHz is the desktop alternative... nothing is faster! It runs warmer than the standard PowerBook and needs to be connected to AC for the absolute fastest workhorse applications.

Problem System? No Problem! Daystar is an Apple Authorized Service Provider! If your PowerBook is having problems, needs a new screen, new parts, or just a full end-to-end cleaning, Daystar will handle the task. We'll provide a full estimate on repairing or refurbishing your system before upgrading.

Week-ender program for nearly zero down-time! This program includes overnight shipping of your iMac (USA only), and 12 hour conversion of your system. So, you ship your system on Thursday, then start working at G4 speeds Monday! Yes, it is expensive, but if downtime is an issue, this is your answer.
