Like the others have said more ram is a must when working with big files like video. Also, any idea how fast your harddrive is? 4200rpm or 5400? If it's a 4200rpm then even going up to a new 5400rpm drive will make a big difference. I really like this drive. http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Seagate/ST980815A/
Very fast and quiet and doesn't use as much battery power as 7200rpm dives.
I have a powerbook g4, 15 inch, and though i've got
quite a few programs on it, i'd like it to run
faster. I do alot of video editing and photoshop
work. any ideas on how to get my baby speeding along?
This probably doesn't affect many people but my PowerBook was so slow I was sure there was a major problem. At one time I had Norton on my Powerbook and thought I had erased it.
On a hunch I went searching for anything containing Norton or Symantec and found all sorts of sneaky bits and pieces. I removed them and the improvement in speed was quite remarkable especially Photoshop CS2.
