I decided to write this small FAQ in haste since some people just come here asking stupid questions (although some say there are no stupid questions) over and over again, so here we go. 1st of all, visit the following pages: http://www.apple.com/ibook/ http://www.apple.com/software/ http://www.apple.com/switch/ Okay, so now you know the basics. If you didn't read, then shame on you! And now, read the FAQ! FAQ 1) Do I need more RAM? - Depends on what you do. 512 megas is fine enough even for normal image processing, gaming, internet, word processing and light audio editing. But more is ofcourse better. 2) Should I get a PowerBook instead? - If you are a professional of some sort or enthuaistic hobby practicer. Or a gaming maniac. Or if you like aluminium better. Otherwise iBook will suit you just fine. It's up to your own wallet, after all. 3) Is the processor crafty enough for basic tasks? - &#!" I hate this question! But yes it is! Even Apple isn't stupid enough to release a laptop of one grand that doesn't know what is the Internet or lacks power to run word editor. Okay now, some kind mod should prolly sticky this, hmm-kay?
