First of all i would like to thank everyone here I have been checking the forum to see what I was doing buying a mac. I just got a used ibook g3 800mhz with 256 meg of ram and I have a few questions for the mac gurus of this forum. 1st I have a 30 gig hard drive on it and with only a clean install of tiger from where I bought it from I only have 12 gig left. Any advice on what I could dump to get some more space, machine is going to be used for wireless internet and mabie watching movies so I don't need a lot. 2nd I used handbreak on my pc to take a couple of dvds and make some mp4s in h211 format, I think I said that right, and the video is crashing. I have ordered a 512mg chip for the ibook to up it to 640 and I was wondering if that would help. 3rd I would like to say that I bought my mac to learn to use os x and because I wanted a second laptop for the house (wife keeps stealing my compaq) and I have to say that I am pretty impressed. Even with just 256 of ram this is running I would say just a little slower than my pc with 2ghz processor and 1 gig of ram when it comes to internet. It is smaller than my compaq and the battery life just does not compare. My compaq laptop which is much newer gets mabie 70 min and it is dead with the wireless on. The mac is getting well over 3 hr with the wireless on. Thanks all for any input from a mac newb.
