Hi Guys. I've had this Quicksilver lying about for a while, i paid £300 for it about a year ago secondhand. My windows/OpenBSD (dual boot) machine has died so i have to use it on a constant basis. I used it before on and off but it was kind of slow. The specs are: - 733 Mhz - 256 Mb Ram - 200GB HDD Now i know that the above is very slow! But saying that when im using it for standard WP, Web Browsing and Web Development it works like a charm, i can even produce A5 Flyers using 150DPI in Photoshop without any problems. The questions i need to ask are: 1) Can i upgrade the processor like i can with a PC? Im guessing no but i thought i'd ask. 2) There is only 3 RAM slots, and i cannot seem to find any 1GB SDRAM Sticks, do they sell them at all? If i could add 3GB that may boost things alot. 3) Is there anything i can do to increase the speed of this machine? 4) Any way to cut down the noise? it sounds like a plane. All im going to use it for is Software and Web Development as well as Word Processing and and some Graphic Design. Im going to get an 8 Core as soon as my student loan comes through but thats 10 months away yet. Thanks for any advice guys.
