I used OS X a 733 G4 with 128 MB RAM today, and it was slower than my G4 400 with 384 MB RAM.

It's crazy that Apple sells machines with that little RAM! The minimum should be 256.

I'm off to buy a stick of 512!

RAM RULES! w00t!

(I wasn't going to make this into a poll, but I saw the option and thought I'd give it a go :))

my imac dv (its all about the Lime..) with 384 MB of ram actually runs faster than my ibook with a maxxed out ram of 640 MB! go figure... but then again, maybe its not the ram that makes the system always run faster.. Bus speed anyone?

I have 1.5GB in my G4 500 and 512MB in my 500MHz TiBook. I have been thinking about replacing one of the 256MB chips in my TiBook with a 512MB, just haven't yet.

512 has treated me well in the TiBook, so there is no rush to get more.

Unless you plan on buying a new mac in like the next 2 or 3 months, buy another 256 meg of ram for $20 from www.18004memory.com and it's like a new lease on life for your machine.
