    How to burn-in or stress test the iBook's CPU and memory?
    I'd like to stress test the processor and the extra stick of ram that I bought for my iBook.

    In the PC world, I'd use Prime95 and memtest (bootable CD) to test the CPU and memory.

    What apps do I use for an iBook?

    xbench is a shareware, that gives video, cpu, hard drive specs. I just got 1gig for my pb15 133 al and tested my puppy before and after. Is this what your'e looking for? http://www.xbench.com/

    Nah, it's not benchmarking software that I want.
    Basically, I'm looking for software that can scan/test the memory for bit errors, and another piece of software to test CPU stablility/consistancy under stress/load.

    As noted on the site;

    "I only tried your product out this afternoon for the first time. I'm really impressed. I heard some buzz about it on versiontracker and some of the tech sites, but thought it was "only" a bench mark utility.





    I had no idea until I downloaded it and watched it run that it was a tool for diagnosing specific problem areas in performance. I assumed that it would only output a single number - like an overall performance rating. Then to see that one can use it to compare to other user's systems: very comprehensive."

    but they do have memtest for mac. http://www.memtestosx.org/
    for the os x system. prime95 is not avaliable yet.

    I would suggest you benchmark also before adding memory or stressing your system.

    There is nothing that does real stress tests but this program does a great job of scanning all of the hard disks, memory and testing the CPU for errors
    Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System

    Or you can use the included apple hardware test for memory & disk errors...

    It's included on the installation cd's.
