    I just got a used powerbook. Liking it so far but i want to upgrade the ram. How do i check what RAM it uses? I normally use CPUz for PC but this obviously isnt a PC...so any help on this subject?

    Wow works perfectly.

    Thanks guys.

    Im new to OSX...but not that new. I did own a iBook before just never see whats the hype is all about in OSX...my sister loves OSX, but i figured she can adapt easily because she doesnt know anything about computers....ive been using windows for 10 years now and gorwn pretty accustomed to it, very hard for me to switch.

    Thats why I bought a powerbook and try to get use to 10.4 before I sell it and buy a macbook

    And anyone know how to go about upgrading this? Is it under the battery like the macbooks? I took out the battery and im assuming its not the same. :(

    O i know theres a few things that cool in OSX...like expose....i love it. BUT the fact that im soooo use to windows makes it hard for me to switch...hence why im FORCING myself to use OSX...

    i learned computers in dos, then windows, then windows 95 and so on and so forth. i made the switch to apple like 2 years ago.

    but i had used osx for work in a few situations, so i wasnt learning from scratch.
