Can all versions of the iBook G4 12" use PC2700 RAM? Even the 800GHz and 1.0 GHz models? I know you're supposed to use PC2100 in them, but the PC2700 is so much less expensive than the PC2100 right now.

I know with PC setups, you can do this; it will just underclock the RAM automatically as it's bottlenecked by the motherboard and/or CPU.

Mac's tend to be finnicky, though I would say the Intel ones would underclock automatically, the G4 may not.
