    i want to buy more RAM for my pb
    hi all

    i want to upgrade my RAM from the 512 to 1gb
    i have the 15" powerbook from 2004
    can one of the slots be left empty
    or does the memory have to be split evenly
    can i, for example, be running 1gb in one slot and 256 in the other

    and also

    can you give me any url's of mac discount online stores in the states?

    thanks

    You should be able to run 1 gig in one slot and 256 in the other without a problem.

    When buying the new ram make sure you buy it from a quality company like Kingston or Crucial.

    Short for Small Outline DIMM, a small version of a DIMM used commonly in notebook computers. Whereas a full-size DIMM has 168 pins and supports 64-bit transfers, a SO DIMM has only 72 pins, which supports only 32-bit transfers, or 144 pins, which supports a full 64-bit transfer

    you need DDR ram that comes in SoDimm Size

    Nothing to be confused about. That is the RAM that you need... its right there in black and white.
    If you buy that then you are good to go.
