So in recently got a G4 iBook. Works great, love it, love the design. My first mac. But heres some of my issues. Some sites freeze up on my PC, such as facebook and heavy Java/Flash sites. is this just because of the 512MB ram? If so ill upgrade to a Gig stick. BUT my friend has the same iBook, same ram, and his doesnt freeze, but hes on 10.4, im on 10.3.9, is this the problem? I also want to know how to install the OS onto my external so I have more room on my laptop. i want to be able to run the programs off my external. It will let me choose to install the OS onto the external, but then says incorrect volume, or along those lines. Does it have to be portioned? I already formatted it. So upgrading my RAM, pretty cheap, but is it worth it? And also, can I upgrade the basic Airport card to make the internet faster? I dont need my PC to be a extreme wiz, mainly just to run audio recording program, internet and Adium, maybe PS CS if possible. I might be going to school in either june or sept for graphic arts, which in then, I know I will need a new macbook, but ill prolly get that on my loan So give me some input guys. Should i try a few upgrades? or deal with it, save and get a better mac when the time comes?
