Hi.

I have an older laptop running win 2k on a Pentium 3, 500Mhz computer (sp4):confused. I believe it is loaded with 128k RAM (under general properties it says 130,544 KB RAM)

When i run IE browser at the same time as itunes, the web pages load really slow and when i need to switch from program to program, it takes an eternity. My question is whether this is because of the processor speed or a lack of RAM. If I increased my RAM to the max allowed for this machine (256k) will my computer run smoother when running itunes and internet explorer at the same time? :confused:

thanks!

thanks for the reply.

so, by buying more RAM (to 128k), the 2 programs will work well while running together?

besides the obvious upgrades, like a new computer, what would you suggest? i have an old sony vaio pcg-f540 and don't have much cash at my disposal right now.
