It seems to me that over the past year my 400 mhz Powerbook G4 Titanium has gotten progressively slower in performance.
The most notable of which is web video, I don't even click on them anymore because they rarely run for me. I know this is a really old laptop, but it still works wonderfully and I refuse to give up on it! I'd love to hear some suggestions/experiences from the group as to things I cold do to get my speed back. Is a processor upgrade on this possible? If so, what/how?
Thanks!
Greg

You can upgrade to a 500MHz, but it would require a new logic board which will probably be a couple hundred bucks. Generally, web content is getting a higher and higher size and bitrate, so older machines are slowly having more and more problems displaying internet content.

I would just make sure you are running with 1GB of RAM and if you already are, I would honestly start looking at getting a new machine. You can get refurbs for $800 or less now.
