I currently have a 15" G4 1.33GHz Powerbook with 768MB RAM (512mb + 256mb) and the stock 4200rpm 60GB hard drive.

Anyway I'm thinking about upgrading either the RAM or Hard drive. I can get a 1GB stick of ram (to make 1.5GB) or a 120GB 5400rpm hard drive, each costs about £65.

Which one of these would offer the most performance increase?


(I'm fairly confident in opening up computers and swapping components and have read the ifixit guides to opening up a PowerBook).
