hello world. i am a new mac user( can you tell?) haha... anyways, i purchased a used iBook G4 12" 1.33ghz 1.5gb ram and 60GB hdd.
now its running osx 10.5.8. its also running really slow doing very normal things. i get the spinning beachball thing every time its "thinking". loading videos from the HDD, opening pictures, etc. very basic commands.
i have the origonal mac OSX install disks, disc 1 and disc 2 wich says on the disk 10.4.2.
i honestly dont know how to tell if all the programs that are installed and running are good, bad or ugly. like i said, im still in PC land in my head, still thinking in PC terms. so i would like to just WIPE IT clean and start over again.
BUT... can i do it and keep the adobe photoshop suite that came with it? id really like to keep that. but if its easier, to do away with it, please, lemme know.
thanks again. hopefully, soon enough, i will be the one aswereing the questions instead of asking them.
