    I have a 867Mhz Powerbook G4 with 640Megs of RAM. When I bought the computer, this was as much RAM as you could put in the unit. However, I'm wondering if this limit was due to the high prices for a 1 gig stick of RAM at the time, or if there is a limitation on the motherboard itself. Sorry if this is addressed elsewhere, I honestly tried searching for the answer first.

    It would help if you said what size screen you had. Although it sounds like you have a first generation 12" Aluminum Book.

    There is some question on whether or not a 1GB stick will work. It definitely hasn't been tested/supported by Apple. Although there is a chance it will work.

    Doh! I knew I was forgetting something! It is infact a 12" Powerbook. I figured someone would have tried by now.
