How much memory for a PowerBook G4?
I am planning on upgrading my PowerBook G4's memory but I do not know what a good amount is. Currently I have 512 MB and it is a little sluggish. The applications I want to run include all of iLife (except Garageband), Office 2008, iWork, Safari, Mail, and some other small ones. This is on Leopard. Would 1 GB be plenty or should I get 2 GB? Do the two sticks have to be the same size? Could I add a 1 GB to my current 512 MB or would that be bad?

You can add a 1GB stick and have 1.5GB total and it will work just fine. Make sure you get it from a good Mac RAM dealer as the PowerPC Macs are picky.
You could get 1GB now and see if that works out for you, then grab another 1GB stick in a month or two to replace your 512 if you think more is needed.
I like OWC as a source for RAM (macsales.com). Great, fast service, good prices, and they specialize for Mac users. There are other sources for Mac RAM (crucial, etc.).
