No, but you might get a slight performance hit that you won't even notice.

So, adding more RAM will slow down the unit...?

no, more RAM will speed up your "unit".

Galatians 5:1

It is for Freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

No, but adding different amounts in each slot, such as 1GB + 512Mb, gives slightly less performance than two identical amounts, such as 2x1GB. The difference is so minute it doesn't matter, but someone always mentions it, so I did too. I'm weak like that.

Okay, so what happens if I install 2 gigs of RAM in my 14" iBook? Isn't the "limit" 1.25 gigs?
