    Not 100% sure. PC2700 333MHz DDR should be backwards compatible (the current iBooks use PC2100 266MHz DDR). Your best bet is to check the manufacturer's website to make sure the memory is Mac compatible.

    Oh and by the way, check out for their prices- they tend to be cheaper than

    Why take a chance on compatibility with generic RAM?

    For starters, that Tiger Direct memory in the link is a 184-pin desktop DIMM and won't fit your iBook nohow.

    Choose a reputable dealer who tests and guarantees compatibility with your model Mac. Some of the MR posters like Crucial, OWC and RAMjet, I like Data Memory Systems. They are real Mac people and have been in business for 17 years.

    $155 for a Gb (the correct RAM for your machine)

    I just wanted to quote that because it's good advice. I've always had issues with TigerDirect, even before the frivolous lawsuit they filed against Apple. Normally, I'd also suggest Newegg, but I've never ordered laptop RAM from them. Just make sure to read the reviews and spend a few extra bucks for the good stuff with lifetime warranties, which seems to be around the same price. PC2700 should work fine with the iBook, just make sure to get the SO-DIMM, which is for notebooks.
