    Hey you guys,

    As you know I have an iBook Clamshell (366,10gigHDD,320ram) running mac OSX server v10.4.11. The iBook takes a bit to load in it's current state, though, so I was wondering if maxing RAM would make sense? Also, would downgrading to Panther help things?:confused::apple:

    Unfortunately, my advice would be to upgrade. A 10(?) year old computer is bound to be slow. I wouldn't pour any more money into it.

    8.5 years old to be exact!:D I don't need alot of power. All I want is better preformance. That's all. No unibody. No iBook G4. Just need upgrade advice.

    Put a faster hard drive 100gb 7200 rpm or 250gb 5400 and a 512mb stick in there.

    You can always take these parts out when you finally want to sell it or it breaks. Tiger will be a breeze with these upgrades.
