If you have 256mb now, you have 256mb soldered to the logic board, and the DIMM slot is empty.

Just install a 1GB RAM stick and you'll be at 1.25GB.

I just did the exact same thing to my friend's iBook a couple weeks ago. It was $45 from OWC (http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/memory/iBooks-PowerBooks/G4-iBook/).

It'll make a world of difference with the ram upgrade. I call my 12" (pb) the apple netbook.

i bought a few days ago a ibook g4 for that use. 1.2ghz 768mb ram,etc,etc ... and it's more useful than a netbook...

PS: it's my first mac :D

Except it's about twice the weight, yeah.

Congrats! I'd considering putting a 1 gig stick in for 1.25 total gigs; before too long the ram will be so old that it will be too old to obtain, or hella expensive.

Hey, I've had them too. :)

Current machine for me, OP, is a 1.33GHz 12" iBook G4 with a blue apple logo, 1GB RAM, and Tiger.
