XLR8 PowerBook G4 Aluminum Upgrades Now Shipping… 1.92 & 2.0 GHz !
New XLR8 MAChSpeed CPU Upgrades for the Aluminum PowerBook G4 deliver
speeds faster than Intel-based Macs.
Atlanta, Georgia, February 15, 2006 Daystar Technology, the Original Mac
Performance Shop, delivered another new milestone in PowerBook speed today.
The introduction of the new XLR8 CPU upgrade for the Aluminum PowerBook G4
systems delivers up to 40% faster performance for owners of most PowerBook
G4 systems. The PowerBook G4 upgrade dubbed, “XLR8 MAChSpeed G4 Aluminum”
is a factory installed upgrade, and is available for immediate purchase.
No Experience Required.
Like the XLR8 MAChSpeed G4 Pismo, Lombard, Titanium and iMac Flat Panel CPU
upgrades, the PowerBook G4 upgrade is a factory installed CPU upgrade.
Users simply place their PowerBook in the provided box. The shipping,
testing, installation and 100% quality assurance is handled completely by
Daystar’s Apple Certified Technicians.
No Compromise, Just Raw Speed.
The CPU is the primary bottleneck on a PowerBook G4. To maximize speed and
compatibility, Daystar uses the latest model, highest rated Freescale
PowerPC (7447a/b) CPUs. The CPU runs transparent to the operating system
and is fully compatible, fully AltiVec enabled, without any additional
software required. The result is a system with much faster processing
power, and improved performance in the Finder and every application.

“This new upgrade provides a “non-Intel” performance choice to stranded
PowerBook G4 owners”, said Gary Dailey, president of Daystar. “It delivers
an honest improvement in speed today, unlike the MacBooks which currently
run in slow PowerPC emulation mode, and don’t support Firewire 800,
VirtualPC or Classic.
Performance for Most PowerBooks.
The new XLR8 MAChSpeed G4 Aluminum CPU upgrade is available for most
PowerBook G4 systems. Users can choose from a variety of 3-way shipping
