wherever you get it, buy pc133 so you can use it in the g4s if you get one.

Check out the site below for finding the lowest prices on all types of Mac RAM. I have ordered from several of the vendors on the list and have not received a faulty module yet. It is best to check if the vendor offers a lifetime warranty on their RAM.

Other World computing is selling pc100 256mb Dimms for $40 each. If you own a G3, you could get 786mb for $120--roughly $0.15 per MB. That oughta stave off the G4 desire for a few months....

Careful here, two things are happening. The original poster said "beige powermacs" and many people replied with info about PC100-133 RAM. PC66-133 RAM is SDRAM and cannot be used in pre-G3 systems. These later non-G3 Mac models (such as the 9500/200 mentioned) use non-SDRAM. even though it is for older models, it is higher priced than a SDRAM DIMM of equavalent density. The two types are not compatable! I believe the original poster wants to know of someplace to get it cheaper.
