100% explainable by CPU speed. (3.0 -2.2)/2.2 = 36% faster CPU
36% of the time should be knocked off of the 2:24 which wd be 52 seconds. 52 seconds off of 2:24 = 1:36

Anybody using 24" ACD with 17" Powerbook?

If so,

1) Are you happy with it?
2) Pros and Cons?
3) Would you consider another external display?

The Apple refurb store has the 24" Cinema Display for $599 - this seems like a great buy.
