I won't try the software myself, I'm too chicken for that.

Haha, wow, software instead of hardware changes overclocking the processor - interesting, indeed. Too bad the changes aren't pernament after a reboot, though. I would try that for sure if I owned an iBook - I love tweaking my Mac. Doesn't sound like you run much of a risk, either.

Why bother, the reviewer stated that he could run his 700MHz iBook from 300-800MHz although 800MHz wasn't entirely stable. It seems pretty useless to tweak out an extra 100MHz just to get an unstable system that will need to be re-tweaked after it crashes.

Seems pretty pointless to me. the excercise is interesting but not really worth it.

Will agree with Macified here. 100Mhz boost with added instability?? not worth it @ all if you ask me. Just like upgrading to the exact same lap and spex, but an 800 Mhz chip. Will not that see that noticeable increase, but you may have paid a small grip of $$ for it. No thanks.
