Thread: HELP on MEMORY SELECTION~!!!
01-12-2005, 12:34 AM #1titan0111GuestHELP on MEMORY SELECTION~!!!
I went to Crucial.com to check on a memory price.
Both of them are 512MB DDR266 PC2100 200-pin SODIMM.
First one is CT6464X265 for $97.99
Second one is CT372707 for $142.13
This is the first time I am upgrading a memory on my iBook.
To me it seems that both memories are identical.
So I sent an email about this and this was their response:
>Thank you for your email. Unfortunately your Apple iBook will require the
>base part number CT6464X265AP in order to function correctly. Apple
>products have special specification in order for the memory modules to be
>compatible with there product lines. Crucial technology acknowledges this

Do you think I should use more expensive identical memory?

this has happened before, the cheaper will work the same, its just crucials BS to try and get you to shell out more money than you have to.
