Slow ibook
 
I just bought a used Apple iBook G3/600 (16 VRAM - Tr) and the videos
wonŽt play in QT nor the videos in youtube or in every player from the
internet.
Is this a Ram problem?
In fact it is overall slow
IŽll appreciate every insight into this matter.
Thank you,

MB

The iBook G3/600 (16 VRAM/Mid-2002 - Translucent White), features a
600 MHz PowerPC 750fx (G3) processor with a 512k "on chip" level 2
cache, 128 MB of RAM, a 20.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a tray-loading
24X CD-ROM drive, 2X AGP ATI Mobility Radeon graphics with 16 MB of
VRAM, and optional AirPort (802.11b) packed into a compact translucent
white case with a 12.1" TFT XGA active matrix display (1024x768 native
resolution).

The straight up answer is...this iBook is 10-11 years old. Nothing is going to make a 2002 computer fast (or even acceptable performance) in 2013.

And whatever version of OS it's running - it's not going to be compatible with the current version of Flash.
