Ran over to Xbench and ran it on the ole .5 GHz iBook. Awesome score of 33.52. This really is a flying score (very sarcastic, if you somehow didn't pick up).

The 2GHz dual-proc G5 doesn't score as well as one might like, which is relatively bad news, barely putting in better than dual 1.42 GHz G4 numbers.

Still waiting to see the first real single processor G5 benchmarks against another machine. Hope the 1.6 G5 beats the dually 1.42 G4 at something so I can rationalize buying it. Looks like another two months before Panther and my purchase, however.
