According to most of the specs I've seen, my TiBook 1ghz, purchased Feb 2003, only supports PC133 SO-DIMMs up to 512 megs. Given its two slots, that means a max ram capacity of 1 GB of RAM. However, most of those specs were written before the existence of 1 GB modules, and I've learned that 1GB modules do work in the 12" AlBooks even though the specs don't mention them.

Does anybody know whether a 1 GB PC133 SO-DIMM would work in my TiBook? I have 768 megs now, and I'd like to keep the computer for a while longer, but it needs an upgrade badly. 1GB RAM would be okay, but more would be great.

There is no such thing as a 1GB PC133 SODIMM. PC133 RAM can ONLY go up to 512MB Modules unless its ECC RAM which won't work with your computer. So to answer your question, no you cannot put a 1GB SODIMM in your PB as long as its PC133 RAM. If its DDR RAM then yes, you can go up to 1GB.

Thanks for the info. Yeah, the Al 12" uses PC2100 RAM, that must be why it can support the 1 GB module.
