Question about new G4 iBook RAM

I am curious if the RAM from the old g3 ibooks will work in the new G4s. I saw some RAM on ebay that I was going to bid on, just wanted to make sure it would work with the new g4 iBooks. It is 512 MB PC133 So-Dimm SDRAM. Thanks

I'm going to say doubtful. The new iBooks use DDR RAM, so I really don't think they're interchangeable.

No, it will not work. As LimeLite said, the new iBooks take DDR, completely different to SDRAM.
