It should work.

Yeh thats what I thought!

It should work but since the seller has a no refund policy I thought it would be better to search round here first!

Thanks though, but anyone with a solid response?

Sorry I can't give you a solid response, but I'll give your some more information anyways.

RAM specifications for your PowerBook can be found here (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=14870) under PowerBook G4 12 (1.5GHz), also take a look a note 24.

The sticky points for me are wether or not the RAM you posted has the correct number of pins and operates at the correct speed.

I don't know wether its an option, but you can find RAM for you PB at http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/memory/iBooks-PowerBooks/G4-Aluminum/ It's guaranteed to work with Macs and OWC has much a great return policy,
