    :confused: Hi guys,

    I wish to upgrade a 512mb RAM to my iBook G3, but the problem is which type of RAM should I refer to?

    Can I simply look for a 512mb PC100 notebook RAM and install into my baby?

    Need some advice...

    Eh, PC2100 is DDR class RAM. Older iBooks cannot use that. PC133 is the fastest non-DDR RAM I have heard of.

    I second buying from crucial or some other dealer like that. They know exactly what memory you need, because macs seem to be picky about memory you buy. In theory any PC100 or PC133 SODIMM should work if it also is the right timing, but its much less of a headache to go through crucial or some other dealer that can say exactly what to buy.

    confusing

    Thanks guys for the replied. But some Mac expert from my side asked me to buy the RAM that compatible with my Ibook. I think they are quite expensive,so, I wish to get some alternative notebook ram for an instance, Kingston/Apacer 512mb SODIMM SDRAM notebook RAM.

    Can I use the other SODIMM RAM that also compatible with other brand of notebook(Besides of Apple)?
