I have an iBook with the following specs:


Hardware Overview:

Machine Name: iBook G4
Machine Model: PowerBook6,7
CPU Type: PowerPC G4 (1.1)
Number Of CPUs: 1
CPU Speed: 1.33 GHz
L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB

The iBook G4 1.33 has maximum ram of 1.5 gb.
since you already have 1.5 gb, that's the limit anyway. the hardware won't go higher

If it's the 12 inch model, it has 512MB ram installed on the logic board.
You can get a maximum of 1.5GB if you put in a 1GB module.

But what if I put a 2GB stick in it?

It won't work.. the logic board isn't compatible with it..
