    Slow ibook
    I just bought a used Apple iBook G3/600 (16 VRAM - Tr) and the videos
    wonīt 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
    Iīll appreciate every insight into this matter.
    Thank you,

    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.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
