Thread: Memory Upgrade
06-11-2004, 08:32 AM #1starrinGuestMemory Upgrade
So now that I have my Powerbook back in hand from getting repaired -- I would like to upgrade the memory.
Currently my 15 inch 1.25 has 512 Mb -- I would like to get it to a gig. I have not looked but do they fill both slots with 256 or one with 512 -- probably the latter right:-(
So if I go to Crucial and get a stick of 512 -- I should install it in the lower slot I assume.
Do any of you think I would see a performance boost for day to day work -- or only when doing things like GarageBand, iDVD, iPhoto, etc...?

Honestly, you can probably work all year on 512mb. Having a gig would be nice, but unless you're doing some SERIOUS photoshop editing, DVD authoring, or the like, you'll probably be just fine with 512.

I figured as much and I would probably get more for the money if I was to buy some useful software or a new bag:-)

Assuming ur using Panther, click the apple menu, click "About this Mac"
Then click "More Info..."; You will open System Profiler. On the left side, under hardware, click memory. You will be able to see how many memory slots are free in ur laptop.
