Introducing New PowerBook G4 CPU Upgrades!
Daystar expands the XLR8 MAChSpeed CPU upgrades to 12" PowerBooks.
Adds low-power / lower-cost choices - Includes free shipping.

Suwanee, GA, May 5, 2006 -- Daystar Technology, the leader in PowerBook CPU upgrades, has expanded its offerings for the award-winning XLR8 MAChSpeed G4 Upgrade Series. Effective today, Daystar has expanded its new line of PowerBook G4 Aluminum CPU upgrades to include the popular PowerBook G4 12". Daystar has also added low-power choices, re-structured pricing, and now includes free shipping.

New 12" PowerBook Upgrade Options.
The new MAChSpeed G4 Upgrade for the 12" PowerBook allows any 12" Aluminum PowerBook (1.0 GHz or above) to be upgraded to the latest 1.67 GHz speeds. The upgrade doubles the size of the internal cache on the early PowerBooks, and also delivers up to 60% more speed. Like other XLR8 PowerBook CPU upgrades, the 12" version is factory installed by Daystar's Apple Certified Technicians.

Running Cooler and Faster.
The PowerBook Aluminum upgrades are now available in a variety of speed options. The lower speed 1.67-1.75 GHz options allow users to make substantial jumps in performance without sacrificing cool running or longer battery life. The 1.92-2.0 GHz options deliver extreme desktop-alternative performance and require AC power to acheive maximum speed with heavy workloads. These high-end upgrades easily surpass the Intel-based Macs in applications like Photoshop, XPress, Flash and Premiere.

3-Way Shipping Included... Free.
Daystar has also simplified the 3-way shipping choices; 1.) Container to customer, 2.) PowerBook to Daystar, and 3.) PowerBook back to customer. Free US Ground shipping is now included. 3-way 2-day, 3-way overnight and Daystar's Weekender service are available at an additional cost.
