    HELP 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

    http://www.crucial.com/store/PartSpe...64X265&cat=RAM

    Second one is CT372707 for $142.13

    http://www.crucial.com/store/MPartsp...&WSPN=CT372707

    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:

    >Hello,

    >Thank you for your email. Unfortunately your Apple iBook will require the

    >and has complied with Apple. The base part number CT6464X265AP is

    >

    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.
