    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum. I've had my Powerbook for about a year, I got it right before they made the switch to intel. :(

    Anyway, I'm kind of illiterate when it comes to more then surfing the net and itunes. Is there any simple mantenence I can do to help get the thing to stop running like syrup?

    Any help is appreciated,

    Pete.

    from what i have heard u dont need to defragment macs, but someone else can chime in on that. i have a powerbook, and upgraded the ram to 2 gigs and that made a huge difference.

    ram will make it snappier here and there.

    restart, run software update, restart again, and then repair permissions.

    Also, I use OnyX every few weeks to clear up everything. Search for it, basically it cleans up everything, empties all the cache's and does required maintance.

    Thanx guys, the thing is running better then it has in a long time. Getting the membership has already been worth the 5 bucks. :bigthumb:
