If anyone wants to take a gander, RtC checks out a Crucial PC133 512MB SODIMM on this TiBook 15" G4-400 and provides comparative benchmarks with iApps, the Finder, and Adobe applications - before and after the RAM upgrade. Installation picts are included.

Please let me know if you'd like Envy News to continue providing Macintosh-platform reviews. Your guidance would be of great help - thanks!

Oooh - heh - a little sidenote; EhMac's very own 'jfpoole' will be writing at least one Mac-related review on Envy.

Thanks Patrick, but hard to do.. hard to benchmark on the Mac, no simple little freeware app out there...

Cheers,

RtC

P.S. If you know of any freeware apps, or shareware apps to benchmark, please PM me and I will check them out.

Neil,

Absolutely!!! It's really good to see references to Mac uses of dual and single platform hardware and the Envy reviews are very thorough. BTW, here's my thorough review of a new 15 gig iPod. This thing freakin ROCKs!

Thanks to all for the kind words. I took them to heart - expect a battery of new Mac-only reviews to come this spring/summer!

As for now, RtC has fired-up a review of the Macally rfMouseJr. - a cordless RF mouse with recharging dock. Very cool for IceBook users!

ps - i'm putting together a 'Mac-Only' contest; stay tuned for details!

Miss; thanks for the suggestions.. it is an excellent application that I've tried on several occasions. I love using it when testing out new ram or a new HD.

Feel free to mention any applications to me...

Cheers,

RtC
