ibook clamshell memory.

I'm thinking of purchasing an ibook clamshell. A tangerine 300 mhz model. I'm only going to use it for writing while on the road, so it doesn't need to be a screaming fast machine. However, I don't want it to be slow as a turtle.. Does anyone know how much memory is supported on the mobo? I'm thinking 512mb, but just to make sure. Also, what type of RAM is supported if I want to upgrade?

Thanks for your help!

The clamshell iBook can take a 512 Mb PC100 low profile module for 544 to 576 Mb total (depending on which model and what is soldered on).

Do you know if this ram would work?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kingston-Mem...8224920&sr=8-2

Or recommend where the best place in the uk is to get a 512mb module for a ibook clamshell 466mhz?

Thanks

Oh dear just noticed this is in the macbook pro forum. I did a search for clamshell memory and found this thread. Sorry it's not in the ibook forum.

Feel free to move it if mods can

RAM link...

I've upgraded a lot of clamshells and have used either Crucial or this brand and never had a problem:
