has anyone noticed if add 512 megs of ddr266 memory for the ibooks it costs like 150 dollars, but if you do it for the 12inch powerbook its like 250 or more?

you'd think that if apple had decent prices on memory, even if its a bit more than 3 party memory, (in this case they do for the ibooks, but not the pbooks) people would actually buy from them, and they would make even more money!

I believe the PB 12" uses DDR266.

This is basically why no one, but no one advises ordering memory from Apple.
