Answered an ad on Craigslist that advertised that they could make my iBook run faster on OX with some secret idea. Here is what was said: what do you guys think? ME: "Okay I'm game! What is the secret? i've got both a 1.2 for a friend and 1.33 14" machines. Want them to speed past Dell laptops." HIS ANSWER: "It is a ram disk utility that lets you create a ram disk on your system, so you can copy programs on it making them run faster, i.e. faster web browsing or programs loading since it is all done using RAM as opposed to the slower hard drive." ME AGAIN: "OKay, but how do I know this will work on my ibooks?I do plan on stuffing them with maxed out ram, but will this increase speed in Word for Mac and surfing the net? Want them to be faaast. Thanks let me know HIS ANSWER: "Ram disk allows to load programs on a virtual hard drive that is accessed from RAM. so you create a RAM drive and copy your programs there, leaving your hard drive free from getting thrashed." What is he talking about?
