Daystar Titanium upgrades
Daystar Technology today introduced the new XLR8 CPU upgrade for Apple's Titanium PowerBook G4 series, delivering up to 100 percent improved performance for owners of most classic Titanium systems. Users desiring the factory-installed upgrade need only place their PowerBook in a provided box. Daystar handles shipping, and ensures that installation as well as testing is performed by Apple Certified Technicians. "The CPU is the primary bottleneck on a PowerBook G4. To maximize speed and compatibility, Daystar uses the latest model, highest rated Freescale PowerPC CPUs. It runs transparent to the operating system and is fully compatible with future OS's. The result is a system with much faster processing power, and improved performance in the Finder and every application." Daystar XLR8 CPU upgrades are priced at $450, and require Mac OS X 10.3.5 or later.
