I just ordered a 12 in and didnt upgrade the memory when i got it, mostly because i was already spending way to much. and now that its not even here yet, im thinking about buying a 512 stick to pop in right when i get it. is the ddr ram the same as found in other notebooks, or is there apple specific ram? and also how hard is it to install? sorry for the newbie q's, this is my first mac. thanks in advance. jon

Go to ramseeker.com and look for DDR2100 RAM. I bought a stick from Data Memory Systems for $153 yesterday. I don't know if it's the same as other notebook computers or not. Anyone else?

Hi!

I bought my ram directly from Apple and the exact type you need to buy is:

512MB PC2100 SO-DIMM DDR266

It is extremely easy to install. Just unscrew the four screws, take off the plate and pop out the 128MB chip currently installed in your Powerbook, and replace it with your new ram.

Apple charged $200.00 for 512MB.

Peter
