I have a first generation Intel Core Duo 2 GHz MacBook with 1 GB of ram with an 80 GB hard drive. I use Photoshop Elements 4 and iPhoto often. On many occasions when I alternate between the two programs I get the spinning beach ball and it seems to take a long time to do certain tasks in Photoshop Elements. This does not happen all the time, but when it does it is very annoying. My question is will upgrading the ram to 2 GB (2 GB is the highest I can go on this computer) help resolve this problem or will I have to invest the money to purchase a Macbook Pro with a dedicated video card. Thanks for any help.
