    I was just given this thing, (my first Mac), and I was wondering if i would be able to install Jaguar on it? I'm guessing I need to install more RAM, (it currently has 64mb, ack!). Any help would greatly be appreciated....thanks.

    if you boot the ram up to 320mb it should be ok. I have heard that you can throw in a 512mb ram stick and it will recognize it.

    Yeah I've seen that too, but I have yet to find a 512 stick that would work with it??

    My mom has an older ibook 300 with 320 mB of ram in it and it runs Jaguar fine. As long as you are not doing processor intense stuff it should be a solid computer:)

    hmmm.

    try and find the ram type for your 'book. like pc100 so-dimm sdram, etc. then just find a 512 stick of that variety. it should work :)

    NOTE: I AM MAKING A CONJECTURE. I HAVE NOT ACTUALLY DONE THIS. NO LIABILITY.

    i have heard 10.2 runs faster than 10.1 on older macs such as this one

    my rev a. ibook, a blueberry 300, is quite happy with os 9 and i won't go full on os x until i get a replacement mac with at least 512 mb of ram and preferably a G4 processor

    yes, the G5 looks hip, but for my needs right now, i would cool with any G4 powered mac...conceivably from now and through three years

    but if pressed for funds, a combo drive ibook 900 with 640 mb of ram should do the trick:D

    10.2 does run better on it than 10.1 did and I turned off the animated dock and genie effects to kinda give it a speed boost. Has any one else notice the difference in optimazation speeds between the G3 and G4 I have a dual 450 G4 and my wife has a G3 500 ibook and The power mac screams thru the optimization part of the updates while the ibook lags behind
