    I want to up the ram at some point on the 12" iBook I just ordered, and this ram looks particulary pleasing. Nice and cheap. Anyone know if it is compatible?

    I'm not going with Crucial because the ram they recommend is a lot more expensive. I live in Canada and therefore have to pay the hefty exchange rate.

    All the specifications match. There is no reason to believe it won't work. I'm sure you'll be enjoying a speedier iBook soon. Enjoy.

    It's impossible to say whether this RAM has the SPD settings correct for Macintosh compatibility.

    I recommend that you choose your RAM from a dealer who tests and guarantees Mac compatibility in writing. You may pay a bit more, but compared to PC Generic RAM that may need to be sent back if it doesn't work you'll save time, trouble and shipping charges and/or restocking charges.

    Thanks

    I agree. But...I don't see a Mac guarantee. Thus, you are on your own.

    Would you suggest buying from, say, CanadaRAM.com? ;)

    I certainly wouldn't disagree, I have it on excellent authority that they know their Macs... ;)
