I've got a MBP 1.83GHz with 512mb of RAM. I have been ripping DVD's to my iPod using Handbrake and I'm averaging about 52fps when not really using anything else. I've just ordered myself 2 1gb sticks of RAM coming tomorrow as the speed is just unbearable and is slower than my old PB with 1gb RAM. When I get these sticks, obviously the general speed of the computer will increase when I use more apps, but will it increase the ripping speed? Any ideas?
