I am completley new to changing RAM and would appreciate any help you could give me in choosing the right one. What is the maximum RAM i can upgrade to and as im based in the UK where is a good non expensive place to buy from?

Thanks again!!!

You need PC100 SODIMMS, 3.3v, 144 pin, NON-ECC.

The max ram on these iBooks is 640mb. You say you have 256mb now, so you should get 1- 512mb stick to replace the 128 in there now, which will max it out.

Not sure where to get the stuff in the UK.......
