So my specs are in my sigline. Like I said, this is a temporary computer that will be given to my dd in a few months. Once I get the hang of things, I know I will be itching to move onto a fast machine. She's only nine but I still want it to move faster. We have PC laptops which are recent, so the slow down here is perceptible even to a child, I imagine. I don't want to sink a bunch of cash into a budget laptop or else I would have just shot for the starts to begin with. If I throw some more RAM in (from where and how), will this make the machine move faster? I don't want to install more memory--to expensive. I should have Tiger installed, rather than Puma by the weekend's end. TIA.
