PB Ram

Hey I have the TiPB 500 and I have 2 sticks of 256. And its kinda slow when loading X, Word, Photoshop. So I was wondering if it would have made a big difference if I have 768MB or 1GB of ram..or will it just help a "bit".

OS X loves RAM, so it would probably be worth it to go to 768 or 1GB. I've seen 1GB kits (2x512) for about $140 on http://www.pricewatch.com

Well, a "bit" is a teensy 'bit' relative, but more RAM is always a good thing.

You would notice a speedup...
