    Now I'm just wondering, Macs can take any kind of RAM correct meaning that any laptop ram DDR PC2700 will work in a Mac laptop that supports DDR PC2700 RAM right? Or do I have to buy a special kind of RAM for a PowerBook/iBook?

    You are correct. I just bought some standard crucial DDR2700 SODIMM's for my PB, and they work great. As long as the ram is of good quality, and of the required specs, you should be ok. There have been people who used cheap ram, and had issue.

    To echo the previous poster, buy good quality RAM. Bad RAM can cause major problems for your computer, it's worth the few extra bucks. I'm not sure if generic "laptop" RAM of a certain speed will be the same size.

    Go to http://www.crucial.com and select your laptop brand to get the EXACT memory that you need.
