Hello, I have an 12" ibook that I would love to upgrade to Tiger (if that's possible) I know I need more RAM (I only have 128 MB) but I can't figure out how to install it. I found directions on the Mac website, but when I opened up my computer, the insides looked nothing like the picture on the instructions. So anyways, my question is, other than the RAM thing, is my system able to handle Tiger? i've used Macs with it and I love it. Has anyone installed Tiger on this system? pros/cons? Thanks.

Im not too sure about how Tiger would run. On my iBook(G3 500MHZ, 256MB), Panther 10.3.9 runs good. Upgrade your RAM to the max if you want to get Tiger.

My 500 Mhz, 320 Mb Dual USB iBook runs tiger like a charm. I am loving my recent switch to Mac.
