Macbook - Using Cubase LE With Macbook

This is probably a silly question, but: I have the 13'' macbook with 512mb ram. When I'm running cubase, my macbook makes a lot of noise and I start to think it's either about to explode or lift off into outerspace. Not to mention the noise sometimes bleeds onto the mics I'm using. Is this a result of too little ram or just the processor in general? If it's the RAM, does anyone have any suggestions for upgrades? If it's the computer in general, I was thinking about spending aboutbuying a G4 powermac or just upgrading my emachines pc (heh).

It's probably just the processor being forced to work harder, which results in it getting hotter, which results in the fans kicking in.
For what it's worth, I'd stick more RAM in though. I'll be using mine with Logic Express for recording my band, and I've stuck the full 2GB in, though you'd probably get away with a gig for most stuff.
Don't think there's much you can do about the fan noise however, it's inevitable. When we record I'm going to have to stick thick curtains / a mattress / some form of divider between the recording gear and the mics to block out the sound.
