RAM in 15" 1,5 GHz PowerBook G4
Yesterday I bought a second hand 15" PowerBook G4 (which looks like new =D). Anyway, it came with 2x256mb RAM, and I want to upgrade. Thing is, I don't know if I should stick 2x512mb or 2x1gb in there. I think going from 512 to 1GB will improve the speed a lot, but will the second GB add any noticable speed increase?

If you're running Tiger (OSX 10.4) or newer, definitely max it out! Stick in as much as you can afford (obviously not more than 2Gb )
I have the same spec PowerBook and it really improved things going from 512Mb to 1Gb, and then later up to 2Gb. I can now happily run Photoshop with a few other applications open at the same time and edit large images.
