Daystar Technology on Friday announced the availability of a CPU upgrade for 12-inch PowerBook G4 systems originally clocked at 867MHz. The new CPU works at 1.4GHz, up to 60 percent faster than before. It costs $449, and that price includes free installation and shipping.
Daystar provides installation using Apple Certified technicians. The upgrade uses a Freescale Seminconductor 7447 model that features twice the internal cache as the original CPU.
The shipping included with the price is US ground delivery — that includes sending you a container, shipping the container back to Daystar, and shipping the upgraded PowerBook back to you. Additional services include two-day, overnight and “weekender” service.
