    btw, unlike powerbook, u cannnot change ibook hard disk yourself or u will void warranty

    i just changed mine to a 80GB 5400rpm with 8MB cache + 1.25GB RAM..so much smoother esp if u run tiger

    Yep Wai is right. After upgrade to TIGER, it zooms much faster! Signal Strength on the wireless is increase as well. Starting time is faster too. Plus you have Safari RSS (not supported on all website but Clubsnap has RSS! Yahoo)

    Even working on CS2 is relatively faster too! Only Nikon Capture and Viewer is still slow....sad to say as it sucks up plenty of RAM juice.

    Just imagine if you use it on a Powerbook!!! If you have the bucks to bang.....at least get the Powerbook 12 inch. Now me thinking of getting rid of my 14inch and get a 15inch PB.....

    Pro Image,
    where can u find 512MB RAM that cost $160 - $180? I also want to buy.

    and how do u search for photos stored in iPhoto, using photoshop? i have to open iPhoto, copy onto desktop or drag into photoshop.
    Very tedious.

    Can picasa2 work on mac?

    iPhoto stores the images under "Pictures", double click on the "Macintohs HD" then select Pictures, select iPhoto Library and go further, will find the images.

    Thus one reason I prefer to use Nikon View instead.

    depends which brand u buy...mine is kingston and still got receipt, and it got life time warranty so i am not worry to get used ram

    make sure the seller let u test the ram on the spot before you pay...in case of incompatibility
