    For RAM, you'll see Crucial.com mentioned by many people on this website. They offer good product support and lifetime warranties on their RAM.
    Also, newegg.com & OWC (www.macsales.com) are other good sites to look at.
    If you do a search under forums, you will find many threads discussing some of these RAM issues.
    As for how much RAM, as much as you can afford - a 1GB extra chip seems like a good starting place if you can afford it.

    As for when to buy a PB, another popular question - again, if you search the forums, you'll find several threads.
    From the MR Buyer's Guide:
    Product: PowerBook
    Last Release: January 31, 2005
    Days Since Update: 184 (Average = 185)
    Recommendation: Buy only if you need it - Approaching the end of a cycle

    Best wishes!

    Hold out for as long as you can, depending on when school starts. If you can wait it out and see if Apple releases anything cool at their next expo which is Sept. 20th-24th.
