Hi There,

My PowerBook feels like it could do with some more memory. Currently running with 512MB which came stock. My question is, where is the best place and best memory to buy for my PowerBook. I'm looking to buy a 1GB stick. I'm in the UK so UK online retailers please. I read a few posts about PowerBooks being fussy when it comes to memory hence this post. I've gone through the memory advisor tool on Crucial and 1GB stick is 120 bit pricey for my liking. Any help much appreciated

Danny

Here you go. Orca Logic. I have their memory in a 1.67 GHz 15" (DDR).

Low def screen model (http://www.orcalogic.co.uk/asp/prodtype.asp?prodtype=571&ft=m&st=3)

and here's a page for the later DDR2 type:

High def screen model (http://www.orcalogic.co.uk/asp/prodtype.asp?prodtype=19123&ft=m&st=3)

They guarantee Apple compatibility and are cheaper than crucial.

Thanks! Is it easy to install?

It's in the bottom - very easy. Open the panel and slip it in. You will need a very small-headed screwdriver, though.

You might also try Data Memory Systems for your RAM.

Ooops, didn't see that part, sorry.

No need for the eye rolling. ;)

But I like the eye-rolling!

As an aside I noticed that DMS supply "Transcend" modules. These are the same as the ones from Orca that I use and I can highly recommend them to anyone from across the pond!

My 1.67ghz Powerboook screams with 2g of RAM!!! You'll definitely see an improvement.

I like the modules I got from them - didn't know the brand - thanks. They are quite nice - they have a rubbery coating on the little chips, which is kind of nice.

Sweet! It's pay day tomorrow. So I'm going to go ahead and order some more memory. 86.83 seems a fair amount for memory. Should I be looking for cheaper? Or is this as good as it gets?
