You guys better forget about that Mercury cell card, it will sell for 7999$ !!! According to xbitlabs: http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/display/20060731225157.html

The world would be a much better place if all the rich and powerfull like Gates would put their money for a better use...

I didn't make myself clear on my last post, when I said there should be more optimized clients I meant not just the Boinc app but Rosetta too... There should be optimized Rosetta for Every kind of OS and processors be it Intel, Amd, Mac, Sun or whatever... And these optimized apps should be made standard by Rosetta so everybody would have to use them, any other app used should be rejected. This way, we'd all be crunching much faster and the cheating would be kept to a minimum. This would help the project in every way, more consistant results and in the points awarded, less cheating and a lot more units being crunched.

Sorry for the repeat

I'm repeating myself but it applies to this thread too...

To me there's not enough optimized clients! There should be Rosetta clients optimized for every kind of cpu and OS out there and also a default unoptimized client for those who don't know what kind of cpu they have (sse,sse2,sse3 etc etc) To me, the thing that matters the most is getting the maximum amout of valid units crunched for the project. Now all these optimized clients should be made official by the project and only those official clients should be used. This would eliminate almost any kind of cheating, no need for a quorum of 3 and would get more units crunched because almost everybody would be using specifically optimized clients. Cheating can never be totally eradicated so at least this way a lot more crunching will get done and this is only good for the project.

This is what's great about this project, people actually take time to explain the science! Good luck in your research Vanita.

If it's a Celeron M it has a meg of cache so it does help. Maybe you've got some power saving options on that throttles down your p4 processor since it's a laptop?

I myself always leave the graphics off but I know alot of people that love to see them. Having these new cool graphics will definitely help the project!
