    Appears to be correct.:eek:

    By the way; your link is not correct...remove one "http" from the link should do it. :)

    Personally I prefer the Apple RAM or Crucial Ram. Never had a problem with either. I believe that the Crucial RAM is also less expensive than the Kingston RAM. :cool:

    They have a series of questions they ask you:

    What brand
    What model
    What specifics
    How much RAM


    And then they spit out a list of RAM that will work for sure.

    Cheers,

    That is the Kingston Valueram generic memory - Kingston does not guarantee compatibility with the Powerbook on this RAM. The correct Kingston RAM is
    KTA-PBG4333/1G
    http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/con...1.67GHz+(PC2700)&distributor=0&submit1=Search

    "DDR 333MHz PC2700 SODIMM 200 pin 2.5V" is not adequate to determine compatibility. It only tells you that it will physically fit, and will run at the 333 MHz speed. It does not tell you if the chip organization and the Serial Presence Detect values are correct for Macintosh Powerbooks.

    If you are a Mac hardware adept, you can take a chance on it and you may save money, or you may lose on return shipping charges, time and trouble.

    If you are a new Mac owner, I recommend you stick to RAM that is tested and guaranteed Mac compatible by a reputable vendor.

    Thanks
