    Installed nice and easy...just seems like its not as dramatic as i had thought? i went from 1gb, to 2gb...do i need to set up anything? system profiler shows it has 2gb. What am i missing here?
    evening opening up word is a little slow...

    does it have to do with the amount of progs and task you can do at once?

    Word isn't Universal Binary so, until Mac Office 2007 is released, Word will run on Rosetta (slow).

    Open up a few iLife programs and see how those run.

    use NeoOffice, it's universal. I deleted Office2004 2 weeks ago and have not had any issues with documents people send to me. The other option is iWork. I hate M$0ffice, it just feels like a shitty windoze program poluting my sexy Mac.

    Yeah, I know you are not really asking...

    neo office can work as excel too, in fact, it completely replaces ms office. with no problems. i only use neo office for spreadsheets because pages and keynote own me. an iwork spreadsheet program would be :cool: though
