Powerbook Questions

Hey guys,
I just bought a 12" Powerbook G4 off of craigslist for $400. I'm geeked about it, since it's my first mac (hopefully followed by a MBP in a few months). I got a pretty good deal, I think. I would like to max out the RAM on it.

I did some research and I just want to make sure I have it right before I order from newegg.

According to Apple's spec page, this Powerbook (12" @ 1.5Ghz) maxes out at 1.25GB of ram. But I'm also reading that it's a single RAM slot. My question is, how do you get 1.25Gbs of RAM with one slot? Would that mean buying a 2GB stick and losing 3/4 of it?

Also, I'm reading that macs are finicky about what RAM they'll take. Would any PC2700 @ 333mhz do it, or is there a particular brand that you guys use?

Thanks in advance for any help!

The 12" PBs had 256MB soldered in. So one 1GB strip will max it out for you.

Thanks for the quick response, bartelby. Is there a particular ram brand that works well with powerbooks?
