iBook G4 14" 1.42ghz RAM upgrade
I curently have an iBook G4 14" 1.42ghz and want to upgrade my RAM. I saw on Crucial.com 512 is $68, and 1ghz is $160. I'd really like to get a gig, but $160 seems a bit steep.
I looked at the RAM they sold, and it showed the following specs:
DDR PC2700 • CL=2.5 • UNBUFFERED • NON-ECC • DDR333 • 2.5V • 128Meg x 64
So now I have two questions:
1. Are these the only speficaitons I need to be looking at when purchasing RAM?
2. Does anyone know a place online I could buy iBook compatible RAM for cheap? By cheap I mean $120 or less.
Thanks in advance.

Don't buy from Crucial...they're overpriced.
I trust OWC and DMS with my RAM purchases. Both come highly recommended by lots of people here at MR. You can get a 1 GB module for your iBook from them for $113-$118...just use their online "wizards" to find the right RAM for your machine.

Also, hate to be such a bother, but could someone tell me if these two would work, at least in theory?
Again, thanks for the help.
Edit: Reading the reviews I found that someone else with an iBook 1.42ghz has tried the top one I linked to and it works fine.
Thanks for the quick responses. Two communities I have found to be extremely resourceful and friendly have been the Mac and Ubuntu communities... not to knock Windows users or anything, of course.
