    PBG4 running like crap
    Well basically my computer is like 4 years old, maybe 5, but it used to work, basically I would like to be able to run Photoshop CS, Dreamweaver 8, mail, safari, preview, and grab without waiting 5 min when switching between programs. This is my setup I think, I'm not crazy technical so if any other info needed let me know...

    Machine Name: PowerBook G4 15"
    Machine Model: PowerBook5,2
    CPU Type: PowerPC G4 (1.1)
    Number Of CPUs: 1
    CPU Speed: 1.25 GHz
    L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB
    Memory: 512 MB
    Bus Speed: 167 MHz
    Boot ROM Version: 4.7.1f1

    What can I do to make running these programs possible, or is it worth adding to this or just buy a new one, which is not really an immediate option to be honest...

    Would love to be able to have some other programs open too but i'd settle for these...

    Also finder says I have 41.71GB available.. thanks

    The only thing you can do is add more Ram. Photoshop and Dreamweaver would be taking up most of your resources.
