Any good tips to optimize my Powerbooks performance? Im planning on installing 1GB extra RAM but other than that are there any other simple tasks i can do to get the best out of it? I've heard defragmenting etc. is no longer neccesary on Macs as it is an in-built operation the mac performs itself 'behind the scenes'... true?

I am using Pro Tools audio editing software quite heavily at the moment and its starting to have trouble keeping up on fairly 'light' sessions, i get "Audio Processing can't keep up" sort of messages. I'd have expected more from my machine (specs below). So, any tips?

Thanks YDR
