    Hi, is it possible to crack open a Powerbook or iBook and upgrade the built in Memory? My PB maxes out at 1.25GB, which I have, but can I swap out the built in 256 for 1Gig inside and have 2gigs? Would the system recognize all of that?

    Give us some sort of clue as to what sort of PowerBook you've got? I assume it's a 12" with 1 user DIMM slot? If that's the case I think that the 256 is soldered to the main logic board and cannot be upgraded.

    I'm not sure with the powerbook, but on the iBook afaik I don't think you can pysically change the ram on the main board because it's soldered in.

    According to Mactracker, 1.25GB is the most that iBook will ever have.
