Early PowerBook G4 Aluminums Now Running at 1.92 GHz...
Daystar announces last stages of development for the XLR8
1.92 GHz upgrade for the 15" PowerBook G4 FW800 systems!

Atlanta, Georgia, November 18, 2005: Daystar Technology, an Apple Authorized Reseller and Mac Performance Integrator, announced today, that it is completing development of the first XLR8 PowerBook G4 (Aluminum) CPU Upgrade. The PowerBook G4 upgrade dubbed, "XLR8 MAChSpeed PowerBook G4" is scheduled to ship next month.

No Compromise, Raw Speed.
Like the XLR8 MAChSpeed G4 Pismo, Lombard, Titainum and iMac Flat Panel CPU upgrades, the PowerBook G4 upgrade will be a full system upgrade, requiring the user to send their PowerBook to Daystar for installation. Daystar uses the latest model CPUs in order to provide perfect quality and long-term reliability.

Pricing and final specifications are expected to be announced closer to the actual product release date. Additional features include:

  • xBench 1.2 Scores jump from high 20's to nearly 50, well surpassing the fastest PowerBook G4 to date.
  • Factory installation via Apple Certified Technicians.
  • Effortless shipping with Daystar's custom boxes and prepaid FedEx shipping options.
  • Compatible with Classic and Mac OS 10.3.5 - 10.4.3.
  • Includes XLR8 MAChSpeed Control for exclusive G4 performance / compatibility.
  • All upgrades warranted at speeds sold, with Daystar's exclusive 90/720 warranty program.

"It is incredible to see the earliest PowerBook G4s, jump to lightening fast response on Tiger - faster than Apple's newest introductions", said Gary Dailey, president of Daystar. "It even runs cooler than the original 1.25 GHz CPUs."
