I recently offered to fix up my cousin's 2004 iBook G4 (1.33 GHz, 512mb). It's in really good condition, just painfully slow. I decided to upgrade the ram to 1.25 GB, get a new battery (the old one only held a charge for a few minutes), and swapped out the original 60 GB 4200 rpm HD to a 64 GB SSD. I also upgraded it from tiger to Leopard. The machine runs noticeably better with much less beach balling, although I guess the SSD is pretty constrained by the old IDE/ATA bus (I was hoping the SSD would have made more of a difference). But Safari is pretty slow and boggy. Typing in the address bar is laggy, there's lots of beach balling, and when I look at activity monitor it is constantly using >40% CPU. Are there better browser options for this machine? It's a shame that it's been somewhat modernized but Safari chokes so much on seemingly simple websites. It has all the updates on Leopard.
