Thread: speed questions...
03-03-2005, 08:57 AM #1e-RICHIEGuestspeed questions...
i just bought an ibook g4 and installed an extra 256 ram, (or so i thought!). compared to my dell 5150 inspiron laptop, the ibook is slower between all the same functions i do on each machine. are there any devices, upgrades, or downloads that i can get to work faster? most, but not all, issues are regarding internet page use. fwiw, i am on an sbc dsl modem and there is an airport card in the ibook.

thanks for replying.
though i am used to i.e., the ibook came only with
safari. it is quite different for me, but that is my
link to online browsing. i thought about downloading
i.e. for mac, but the appliance is three days old and
i don't want to start "messin'" with it.
in short, the page loads will be different through
safari compared to with i.e.? can i safely download
i.e. and make it my default browser?

it is there.
i just set it to my sidebar and tried it all as my default
browser; the settings are much more familiar to me as
a career pc user. i think i'll stay with i.e. for awhile as
i get used to the ibook on day 4!
one more quetion regarding my original query: on the
icon for mac osx downloads, the top listed favorite is
something called "speed download 3.0". is that a recommended
download, and will it be noticeable using i.e. or some
