Really Not Worth The Money
I put this Sonnet 1GHz upgrade into my old G4-Sawtooth-500MHz machine. The installation was a snap but I don't see any noticeable increase in speed at all. The machine does not boot any faster and applications still take a long time to load and give me the spinning ball while they load. I expected to see a very significant speed increase going from 500MHz to 1GHz but it's so subtle as to be almost invisible. I admit that the 100MHz bus of the Sawtooth might be a factor but I would urge buyers to spend more money and get a faster CPU if you can afford it. If you have at least 500MHz now and a decently fast hard drive I would not recommend this CPU as an upgrade.
