Hi Guys!
I have an old PowerBook G4 with the PC2-4200-444 type 512MB RAM. Bought it end of 2006 (New) and have had no problems as yet. Use it for Audio editing(Logic Pro) and stuff. Looking to max out the RAM to 2 GB and upgrade to the Leopard.

Question: There is an advert on the Forum site from Crucial Memory chips ( 2 x 1 GB SODIMM PC2-4200-5300.) which they claim as 100% compatible with my machine. Are these any good? Should I go ahead and buy these? How difficult is it to replace/change memory chips on the PowerBook( I've not done it before)?

Thanks.

As for replacing the Ram, it should be in the manual that came wioth that mac, otherwise
