    Hi Guys,

    I have a 1Ghz 12" powerbook with 768mb of ram. 256 soldered, and a 512mb chip that i installed when i bought it 4 years ago.

    The 1gb chip is $84.99. but the macbook 1gb chips are much cheaper! is there any way i can use an alternative?

    Thanks,

    M

    You have to use RAM that has the same specs. Newer RAM will not work in these.

    www.datamemorysystems.com has them for $69. They also list the specs for the RAM (PC2100, 266MHz, etc.). You can shop around for a better price if you use those specs.
