    I'm wondering how much life is left in my 900 MHz G3 iBook (v2.3 with 256 MB). I only use it for web browsing, word processing, and minor media storage, but it's definitely showing its age. Web pages take a while to load and streaming video's too slow to be usable. Would a RAM upgrade solve this, or is it even worth the investment?

    Not worth it. I had an 800mhz w/640mb, and it still had trouble with flash or video. If you need a performance boost, sell it for an Intel machine (whether PC or Apple).
