Any advice on doubling or tripling my 60GB machine and, possibly, the ram? Vendors? Quality problems, if any? (I only use my PowerBook G4 for photography--storage and editing, some word processing, and spreadsheet work.) My processor is 1.33 GHz PowerPC G4. Memory is 768 MB DDR SARAM. Running OS X 10.4.9.

You already said this in another post, he was asking for the model of your Mac (i.e.: PowerBook G4 12" 1.33 ghz rev c) also the RAM speed.

It frustrates me how that gen of PowerBooks has really expensive RAM. I've been with 512MB since I bought it in 2004. It's served me well, but I'd really love more.
