Powerbook repair question
The lower memory slot on my 15'' PB just failed, so I am going to bring it in to the nearest Apple store. My question is should I remove the 3rd party RAM (which is from Crucial) in the upper slot and leave only the original Apple module in the lower slot. I heard that Apple repair people do not like 3rd party RAM. Can they really refuse repair when they see a 3rd party module, or I should be OK leaving the 3rd party module in?

They can't 'refuse' repair, but they can blame the third-party part and 'forget' to fix anything else.
Put the Apple RAM in and avoid hassles.
Ex = former, no longer. Spurt = a leak, esp. when caused by water pressure. Expert = a has-been drip under pressure.

The Genius could not reproduce the defect on site (of course, the PB booted up normally when it was being watched - duh ), but he still took my words and OKed a logic board replacement. Happy with the service so far - but now will have to get used to living without the PB for several days, which is hard...
