Well, my memory is already maxed-out at 2 GB. I do do maintenance on my machine, but Leopard runs like (excuse the vernacular,) crap. From what I've read Snow Leopard isn't any better (i.e....

A good choice may be to buy a refurb MacBook from Apple.com. They come with the same warranty as a new notebook, but are considerably cheaper. I did this multiple times and I have had NO problems...

Question What do you guys think, upgrade, or not?

First off, let me premise this by saying that I apologize for asking such a redundant question about such a popular computer. However, I have about two years of school left (public relations at...

Actually, I don't have the iBook anymore--I sold it. But was wondering how the G3 chip stood up to the G4. I figured the G4 would be faster, obviously, I just didn't think it'd be THAT much being...

Thanks! I knew that was probably the right answer, but you never know. I still plan on maxing out the Ram and maybe buy a faster processor kit.

I save a LOT of battery time on my Macbook with the screen all the way down to one "click." Almost as much as two hours when dealing with a full battery.

So do you think that I should just spring for the mid-level 2.0ghz, 1gb ram, 80gb, superdrive core duo 2? :) It actually doesn't sound that bad after all.

iBook charger acting weird with new battery

Hi. I just bought a new battery for my 12" iBook G3 and I'm guessing it was made for a newer iBook since it isn't ice colored, but simply white. It works like it should, but when I use my charger...
