I currently have a clamshell 300mhz and want to upgrade the ram, i plan on buying a 256mb chip. I have looked at lowendmac.com, crucial.com, and pbfixit.com and i'm really confused. I'm not very Ram smart, after looking at them i have a couple of questions that i'd like answered by some smarter than me

after reading all of the stuff on there sites, can i get ANY pc100, pc66, or pc133 stick as long as it's 144 pin? also can i just go to my local office depot and say "give me a 256 pc100 144pin stick?" or does it have to be specifically for an ibook? i'm really confused my brain is hurting:confused:

thanks to anyone and everyone that can help me clear this up.

yes you can go into office depot and ask for that type of RAM. rather or not they carry it is a different question.

Yes, that RAM should work. I would advise against buying used RAM on eBay, though. Just because the RAM was pulled from a "working" laptop, doesn't mean that there isn't a problem with the RAM. Refunds and guarantees it will work aside, you are better off gettng brand new RAM.

The one posted by someone else here would be a much better option for you.
