Imac G4 RAM upgrade

What is the maximum amount of RAM that can go into the Imac G4 700Mhz? It annoyingly only had one memory upgrade slot.

The max is 1GB, or 2 512MB PC100(PC133) DIMMs. One would have to be a regular 512MB PC133 DIMM which would need to be installed inside the dome, and the other, a 512MB PC133 SODIMM (laptop RAM) which would be installed in the bottom of the dome in the User Slot.

There is no such thing as a 1GB PC133 DIMM, or SODIMM in case you're wondering.

You probably did, but it was 100% likely that it was ECC RAM (RAM with Error Correction built into it) which CANNOT be used on any Mac that requires PC133 RAM.

Will any 144-pin PC133 SODIMM work in the user-accessible slot? - e.g. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=110337335869

thanks
