    New iBook Running Slow...
    So, I recently (few months ago) bought a used iBook. When I first got it the machine was running fine, but recently I feel that it has started to run a little slower than normal. Is there anything I can do to bump up the speed?

    I.e. Like a defrag for a PC.

    What's the processing speed and RAM you have installed on your iBook?

    ...Nevermind...Apparently I'm in retard mode today...
    What operating system do you have installed on it?
    This might spark up some "nay-sayers" but....
    I know a 1.33 iBook CAN support leopard but...BUT
    When I had a 1.42 GHz iBook, everything ran A LOT faster on Tiger than Leopard.
    Yes my name is Jaguar.
    No, it is not a joke.
    I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.
