PowerPC G4 Performance and Compatibility
for your PowerBook G3!
Peace of mind with
XLR8's professional conversion process and protection software!
Low power CPU and components for maximum battery life!

Up to 300% Faster
Than Your Current System In Mac OS X!

The XLR8 MAChSpeed G4 LOMBARD upgrade with its superfast 250+ MHz backside cache and exclusive MAChSpeed Control software (optional) transforms your PowerBook G3 (Lombard) into an AltiVec energized PowerPC G4 laptop. Great for graphics, video, OSX and games... it allows you to run heavy-duty G4 Apps like iChat AV and Final Cut Pro! With Mac OS X and most Graphics applications now optimized for the G4's Velocity engine, you'll experience bursts of speed that are up to 5 times faster than your current system. Plus, the MAChSpeed's low-power design, ensures maximum battery life (another Daystar exclusive)!

Installation, testing, shipping, and worries are handled! No Hidden Costs! No Hidden Problems! All you have to do is order, then put your PowerBook in the provided shipping container - we do the rest... in 24 hours. All shipping of the unit itself is included. All labor and parts are also included. Unlike reseller conversion processes, we do it all - factory direct! Daystar professionals handle all electronics work, CPU conversion, system tuning, software and testing, so you get fast, secure and professional service. And, with 24 hour turnaround, you're assured of running at full G4 speed in just a few days.

Problem System? No Problem! If your system is having problems, needs a new screen, new parts, or just a full end-to-end cleaning, Daystart's Apple Authorized professionals can handle the task. Just include your service request on the system checklikst when you ship your Pismo. Daystar will provide a full estimate while your system is being upgraded..

Week-ender program for nearly zero down-time! Much like Daystar's original Mac IIcx upgrade program, we offer the Pismo "Week-ender". This program includes overnight shipping of your PowerBook (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 extra, but if downtime is an issue, this is your answer

New Upgrade Kits! For Apple Techs, or experienced "technical endusers". Daystar now offers full upgrade kits. The kits include everything needed for upgrading, and also include a rebate coupon, allowing customers to send back their old CPU and Heat Sink for a hefty ($55) savings!
