If so, would you mind running the Live 8 performance test:

and the Geekbench test:

and posting the scores here for me? Thanks!

I should be getting my Suite 8 upgrade in the mail in a few days and will be able to run the test then.

Power outage here, otherwise I wouldve run them for you now. Hopefully back on in an hour or two, will run them then.
