    Rubber feet height?
    I'll warn everyone in advance that this is ridiculous, but here it is: Has anyone else noticed that the rubber "foot" on the battery is slightly shorter than the 3 other "feet" on the computer itself? I assume it has something to do with the fact that the battery isn't completely flush, so the foot is shorter to compensate? I told you it was ridiculous.

    Hi Padawan, I know it's kinda off topic, but I was wondering...
    I see you have 640K RAM in your iBook. I am planning on doing the same thing, but I want to make sure it really makes a difference...

    And now for all the rest of you on mac-forums:

    I run really heavy programs on my iBook. Photoshop, Quark, Illustrator. Mostly all at the same time, with quite big files (+50 mb)...

    Would upgrading RAM improve performance, or should I consider upgrading to a powerbook?

    Well, I do notice a difference, but it isn't as pronounced as I expected. I think I wasn't pushing my iBook very hard to begin with, so the 256 was enough. If I used memory more heavily, I definitely think I would have noticed more of a difference. The upgrade was still worth it to me, because now I know that my machine is as fast as it's going to get.

    I had 512MB in my Powerbook and just upgraded to 1024, and I really didnt see that much of an improvement.. sure i can have a whole lot more stuff open before it starts slowing down, but that's a small increase.. So in my case.. it wasnt a big improvement..
