I am getting conflicting information as to what memory to buy for my new 12" 1Gz PB G4. Apple's site lists a 1Gb block as =$700 for PC2100 and I have found sites MemoryForLess.com (http://memorysolutions.com/pog4al.html) that have it priced at $349. But they list it as PC2700 and it dosn't look at all like the memory that Apple sells.

What should it cost, and what kind do I need.
I believe in maxing out the RAM early on, so I am looking for a 1Gb. Also, I really shouldn't run FCP on anything less than that.

Another vender ApplesOnly.com (http://powerlinememory.com/G4_PowerBook_pc2100_DDR266_Memory_Upgrades.htm)

In advance- Thank you.

...Some of the Apple 12" Powerbook G4 models use DDR 266(PC2100) and some use DDR 333(PC2700). In almost all cases the PC2700 will work on a system that only needs PC2100 as long as all the other specs are met.

Thank you.

How do I know what memory my PowerBook can take?

It is a refurbished 12" 1Gz. I just bought it. It has not arrived, but I just realized that I need to add memory.

Does anybody have any recomendations as to venders?

As for which to buy, people seem to like Crucial and Kingston.

The 12" 1 GHz Powerbook takes DDR PC2100 RAM.

The Spec pages were just updated and the 1gz modle is not listed. Thank you all. I am looking at Crucial and at Kingston.
