Hi all -- I currently have a G3 iBook purchased in 2002 and installed a memory upgrade to 384 following the purchase. Obviously, there was a great speed increase and less "wear" on the HD as there is a lower need to access cache constantly. I am trying to perk up this computer once again yet don't want to invest in a new Apple just yet... if I upgrade to the max of 512 megs, will it make much a difference between the two? I know this question might sound a bit inane, but don't want to upgrade if there won't be a significant "need". I am running 10.2.8 right now, planning on going to Panther (and possibly Tiger)... will the upp'd memory help that as well? Thanks.
