Let's make an iBook G4 Amazing!
I was wondering if you could help me.
I have an iBook G4 1.33 Ghz and 512 RAM, I'll be upgrading my mac I've decided this time next year, before going to university.
In the mean time, could you give me some suggestions as to how to upgrade my iBook, in terms of software, hardware, etc. to keep me going for another year.
My most common tasks are making music, very minor photo editing, web browsing, and I have large music and photo libraries.
What changes could I make to improve my iBooks quality of life (and mine) for the time being?
Thanks for your help!

Max out the ram and put in a bigger/faster hard drive.
I owned a 12" 1.33Ghz iBook and doing the two above upgrades made a world of difference.
The primary reason I sold my iBook was so that I could do virtualization with VMware, Parallels, etc (I primarily use VirtualBox now). The possibilities of Intel were just too tempting.
However, there is not a day that goes by that I don't miss the form factor of my 12" iBook. (although, I'll take the MacBook's keyboard any day)

Now, I'm not exactly amazing with computers, so I'll certainly figure out the RAM bit. But how does one actually put in a fast/big hard drive.That sounds pretty complex.No?
