Resize iTunes3 windows without realtime updates Apps
As everyone knows, iTunes 3 comes with live window resizing. Some people might not like this for speed reasons. However, if you hold down command while dragging the resize widget, you'll get the old "window outline" resize from the previous two versions.

Mine works the opposite. I only get live updateing when I press command. Is there a way to switch this? I would like to have live updqateing like everyone else. Also can anyone tell me why mine works the complete opposite as evryone else?

My iBook 700 does the same thing. I have a feeling it checks the specs on your mac and decides which mode to use as default based on whether your Mac is fast enough or not. My best guess is that it is enabled on G4 Macs and disabled on G3s. Or it may look at clock speed. Can anyone confirm this? Let us know what model you use and how iTunes reacts on your Mac.

Uses live resizing by default, but should probably use outline resizing :-).

Tibook 550, uses live resizing by default, but I would like it to do outline option.

Outline resizing by default on my computer and live resizing with command key.

600 mhz ibook. I can understand the reasoning for this but I would rather have the option in the preferances rather having apple decide weather or not my computer is capable of live window resizing.
