    RAM upgrade to 1GB - prices?
    i am wanting to upgrade the RAM in my iBook from 512MB to 1GB. i read that there is only one slot for RAM, so i'd have to buy a 1GB chip, not an additional 512MB chip.

    "The computers indicated by this note number use 1.25-inch PC2700 (also called DDR333) DDR SDRAM SO-DIMMs."

    iBook G4 (Mid 2005)
    512 Up to 1.5 GB 333 MHz (PC2700)


    is the RAM for an apple machine different from RAM for a windows-based machine? i am guessing due to the prices i am seeing, it's not. can i buy PC2700 DDR333 RAM on ebay and have it work?

    where's the cheapest place for RAM? i am seeing prices of $150 - $170 for a stick of RAM! gah! that's sooooo expensive.

    help?

    I purchased a gig of Ram for my iBook in March of 2005. It cost me $210 total. I would think paying around $150 is pretty decent. As long as it is So-dimm PC 2700 DDR RAM, you should be ok.

    I recommend Data Memory Systems - US$135 for 1 Gb Mac-tested and guaranteed. Also excellent people to deal with

    Thanks
