I get a score of 38. I tried killing the Dashboard and it went down another point. I can't believe people are getting a 12-15% better score with the same specs (1.42GHz, 1GB), unless they have a 5,400rpm hard drive. Mine is a 4,200rpm Toshiba POS.

I am using a firewire drive and got an average of 45.23 over three tests. Using the internal Toshiba 4,200 rpm drive I got a three test average of 35.78.

Oh my bad... I thought the scores were coming from using internal drives. I don't feel so bad about my score now.
