- 1.2gHz g4, 12 inch, 60 gig, 768RAM, bluetooth, ATI radeon 9200, macally bluetooth mouse, JBL speaker
so after a long time of dealing with the HP laptop, i finally got rid of it and bought a 12 inch ibook g4. very nice i might add. its the latest verion out with the 1.2ghz g4 and built in airport. i got it with a 60 gig HD and bluetooth as well. i hesitated on the RAM becasue i wasnt sure how it affects the battery life, and because if i need to, i can get 512 for around 100 bucks online instead of 256 for 90 bucks from apple. will a total of 764 or even 512 reduce the battery life? should i just stick with the 256 onboard? thanks a bunch. i look foreward to being a mac user. haha. peace.

Nice purchase, i got the same one. The advantages of having more ram FAR outweigh any negative effects that the RAM will cause. I think if it does cause more battery usage, it is negligible. In theory, the ram will only make you use more battery because you are more likely to leave a lot of programs open at the same time.

You also have to realize that having less ram means more hard drive spinning which means more battery consumption.

Can't wait for my upgrade. I'm going to max out this bad boy
