Work Twice as Fast on Your iMac Flat Panel G4!
The XLR8 MAChSpeed G4 iMac FP CPU upgrade, will energize your system with new life. With real-world 2x performance, you're getting a completely different user experience!

This upgrade not only delivers 1.35 GHz or 1.92 GHz in performance, but doubles the size of your current cache to 512 KB - that translates to more performance in half the time. That's half the time to create, to view, to work... and twice the time to play!.

The MAChSpeed's Fast 7457 (1.35 GHz) and 7447A (1.92 GHz) G4 CPUs are 100% compatible with everything you run. They work transparently with all Apple's latest applications and newest OS's - Panther and Tiger. So now, you can run the latest and greatest while keeping your beautiful iMac Flat Panel system!

Daystar installs all new components (CPU w/ 512 KB cache and motherboard modifications). Our Apple Certified technicians will fully test the system (our 21 point checkup) and also complete a full diagnostic at no extra charge. A wide range of shipping options are available when ordering. Daystar also offers a custom shipping container at no extra charge.

Wondering if an upgrade is right for your system? Consider this...
The iMac Flat Panel is an excellent computer.
Most can boot into OS9, have the expandability of all the latest systems, much quieter and is more elegant in physical design than the iMac G5. Unlike the Mac Mini, the iMac is very expandable with sound in, multiple ports and video out (and faster!).
Extend the life of your iMac Flat Panel.
The fast 7457/7447A CPUs deliver new life to your aging iMac FP. They extend the useful life for another few years. Great for work, home or school.
Wait for the next great iMac jump, before buying new.
Apple's has announced that G5 is out, and Intel is in. In short, why buy a new iMac G5 today when the iMac with Intel will coming? Plus, you can get "near G5" performance for OS X now and use all the newest "fast G4" only Apps at full speed, today!
Installation, testing, and configuration are included! No Hidden Costs! No Hidden Problems! All you have to do is order, select your shipping options, then put your iMac in the provided shipping container - we do the rest... in 48 hours. All labor and parts are included. Unlike reseller conversion processes, we do it all - factory direct! Daystar's Apple Certified Technicians handle all electronics work, CPU conversion, system tuning, software and testing, so you get fast, secure and professional service. And, with 48 hour turnaround, you're assured of running at superfast G4 speeds in just a few days.

Problem System? No Problem! Daystar is an Apple Authorized Service Provider! If your system is having problems, needs a new screen, new parts, or just a full end-to-end cleaning, Daystar will handle the task. Just include your service request on the system checklist when you ship your iMac. Daystar will provide a full estimate on repairing or refurbishing your system before upgrading.

Week-ender program for nearly zero down-time! Just like Daystar's renown Pismo Upgrade program, we offer the iMac FP "Week-ender". 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.
