hi.

so i've got this old ppc g4 1.2ghz that's my pet project, trying to prove to its previous owner (my gf) that it's still a viable laptop...so I upgraded from panther to tiger and the restrictive ram (256mb) is even more of an issue. Really sux. So I hit a hardware website and it specified that the memory in it is 200pin ddr sodimm pc2700. I love to get all my junk off craigslist, but man nobody has any of this. Wondering if ddr2/ddr3 would work if it fit. what about that whole 2700 thing, something i definitely have to stick to?

thanx in advance (or just thanx for bothering to read)

DDR2 or DDR3 RAM will not physically fit. Which is fortunate because it won't work.
