12' Powerbook RAM upgrade
Hey, I have a 1.33Ghz 12' Powerbook with 768mb Ram. I'd like to upgrade this. As I understand it, the max RAM for this machine is 1GB. I'm just wondering if anyone could give me an idea as to how much of a speed boost I could expect from this upgrade? is it worth doing? Will it make a difference?
Spoke to Apple technician this morning, and I think he said he would take out the 512mb RAM chip and install a 1Gb one - but wouldn't this give me 1.25GB, approximately? I didn't think this machine could take that. He left me a little confused.
Thanks in advance for any help.
EDIT: Have just found out that I can actually max my machine out to 1.25GB for a fairly cheap price. Seems worth doing then, yes? Anybody made a jump from 768 - 1.25 before? Did it make a big difference?

1.25 GB is the max. 256 MB is soldered onto the board and is not removable, I believe. So you can add up to 1 GB additionally to your 12". Unfortunately, I found that the difference wasn't extreme from 0.75 GB to 1.25 GB.

i got mine iwht 1.25gb already installed but i would recommend it if you can get it cheap enough. 1gb pc2100 sodimms arn't really that expensive anways. it's easy to do yourself as well so you won't end up paying someone else to do it.
