Hi, I just recently am getting an older iBook 500 MHz snow model. What is the max memory I can install and what is the speed of memory will it take? :biohazard

Thanks,

It will take a max of 640 (128 built in and a 512 stick) of PC100 144-pin SO-DIMM

If you have the original ibook 500(the one before October 16, 2001,)
, then the max ram U can put in is 576mb (512+64mb sodered onto logic board)

Does it have a 15gb or larger hard drive? If so, it is the second generation(that can take 640mb.)

If it has a 10gb, most likely its ram max is 576mb.

See http://www.everymac.com/systems/appl...ibook_500.html for more details about the differences. :headphone
