    I'm not too familiar with tweaking computers, but I think I may need to get some extra RAM for my ibook seeing as it has trouble not lagging when there are more than 10 smilies on the screen :hs:

    Anyways, what kind of RAM do I need to get? It's a few month old ibook g4 12". And where can I get this RAM and how exactly do I go about installing it?

    both me and "diranged" on OT have g4 iBooks and got the giel golden dragon series 512 sticks. Works GREAT.

    maxing out the ram helped SOOOO much.

    safari lags on my iBook as well when there are a few smilies. If I use FireFox it's fine though. (I have 640meg)
