I just recently got an G4 ibook 12inch with 512mb of ram and a 60gig HD in January. I installed Microsoft Office for the mac and I've noticed that whenever I use Word I have a problem. There is a noticable lag when you type. It averages about a couple letters to a word or two behind what I'm typing. It is very frustrating. Is it the iBook? some setting in OS X? Nothing else is running while I'm using Word. I also have noticed that whenever I try and load something from the HD that there is a little lag. I have a slower PC at home that feels a lot faster than this ibook. Is this due to the Hard Drive? Or how OS X operates? What can I do to speed things up? any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Matt PS: I've already tried repairing permissions and using Onyx but to no avail.
