I want to upgrade the memory in my G4 ibook. the memory off the apple site is quite expensive. Can you use any memory that is 512mb SODIMM PC2100 200pin or dos it have to be from a certain manufacturer?

Not unless the memory or installation causes the damage. Apple doesn't manufacturer its memory anyway, so technicaly all memory is "non-Apple". Try checking out - I had a good experience purchasing my RAM there.

I purchased my memory from an online company called Omni-technologies []. Great ram at a great price w/ fast shipping and friendly service. Can't beat that
