    iBook memory question
    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,
    Relfow (AKA Jeremy)

    Specs:
    20" iMac C2D 2.16ghz, 13" MacBook 2.0ghz, 60gb iPod vid, 1gb nano
    It will take a max of 640 (128 built in and a 512 stick) of PC100 144-pin SO-DIMM

    Specs:
    Powermac g4 400mhz, 10gb, 256mb ram, OS9
    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
