    Quick question for iBook 600 owners. Have you upgraded your memory? What to what? I have 384 and I am considering going to 640. What type of performance difference would I see? Bring the advice. Is it worth the 200 bucks?

    More memory

    You will only notice it for applications that use a lot of memory (Photoshop) or if you are running a lot of applications at the same time.

    It may be entirely possible that you are not using 'all' of your memory now, so adding more would make no difference whatsoever.

    The noticeable speed difference comes when disk swapping is reduced or eliminated.

    Well, I am going to be using VPC a lot. That will be the main concern. I will be running VPC almost all day here at work. That is why I was wondering.

    VPC

    If you're going to be using VPC, I would definitely get more memory.
