Here are the stats from our Macs ( using the new client.

PowerBook Duo 2300c (100 MHz PowerPC 603e) approx 400k keys/sec
PowerBook 1400cs (117 MHz PowerPC 603e) approx 485k keys/sec
PowerBook 3400c (180 MHz PowerPC 603e) approx 775k keys/sec
Power Mac 7600/120 (120 MHz PowerPC 604) approx 630k keys/sec
Power Mac 7600/132 (132 MHz PowerPC 604) approx 720k keys/sec
Power Mac 8500/180 (180 MHz PowerPC 604) approx 990k keys/sec
Power Mac 8500/200 (200 MHz PowerPC 604e) approx 1095k keys/sec

There was no tweaking done to these Macs ... we just launch deschall with
any extensions the user has, and did not touch the deschall prefs file.
The app normally runs in the foreground during the night/early morning.

Helpful hint for anyone running this on a PowerBook - you should make sure
that "Processor Cycling" is disabled. To do this, go into the PowerBook
control panel. In System 7.5 the option is "hidden." You must hold down
option and select Custom. You will see the option there. It will make a
significant difference in performance.
