    I'm considering getting a 14" 1.33GHz iBook sometime in the near future. I'm going to order it only with it's basic 256MB and then add in some more myself. I'm assuming it will be 512MB added on for a max of 768MB. 1GB is a little too expensive, and 1.25GB is probably a bit overkill for an iBook.

    Anyways, according to ramseeker.com, iBook ram is cheapest at 18004memory.com for around $50. Anyone know the quality of their ram they sell?

    I'm sure the memory from 1800memory would be fine, as long as they guarentee it working in your model. By the way, where is this deal for $50; I couldn't find it. I've heard good things about Datamem. I don't have any actual experience, but I've read many positive reviews. Also, you can't have enough RAM with OS 10. Also a gig wouldn't really be that expensive if you just got 2 512 MB chips.

    I got a 512 MB stick for a iBook that I had before. Worked perfectly for almost two years. The iBook was the most stable machine I've ever had.

    No problems with either of the 2 sticks I've purchased from them. Be sure to compare their prices with Other World Computing, though. Lately I've found some better prices (and cheaper shipping) there.

    I bought a 512 MB memory module for my iBook. It shipped quickly, but isn't at all recognized by my system. I'm not positive that it's the memory module, though, as I don't have any other modules to try.

    BTW, remember that with the iBook I can't put two 512MB modules in it. It has 256MB soldered onboard, and one open slot, with a max of 1.25GB.

    I've ordered just about all my RAM from 18004memory.com and I've had nothing but good experiences with them.
