Nope 12.1, 500Mhz. I don't recall seeing the first battery over 4000
though. My fuzzy memory places it between 3400 & 3800. Maybe Apple improved
their batteries and I got a good one as a replacement. I brought it down to
about 25% today and it didn't die so if there is a cliff it's not that bad
yet. It ran minimally (No screen, clocked down to 400Mhz, very low CPU
usage, and hte only filesystem access in a ram drive) from 10:30am to
3:30pm, and was still estimating 1 -1:30 left on the battery.
Hmm, I may have to bring it down a bit more and look for a cliff later.
