Okay, so before I get into this, let it be known that I've already ordereed 1gig of ram extra for my new powerbook and it should be here sometime this week. Now that that's out of the way, can anyone tell me waht specifically is the advantage to more ram? I did a search and couldn't find any specifics (maybe I wasn't using the right search terms) I mean we all know that we're supposed to, but what does the adding of ram actually do? Also how come some ram is better than others? If this is in the wrong section I'm sorry, and thanks for your time.
