    Ok here's the setup: I have a 12'' Powerbook G4 867 MHZ with currently 640 MB of RAM while using 10.2. I've had since the summer of 2003 and it's been a great tool and lately I've been using it more on a everyday basis (partly b/c my PC has been acting wonky...possible video card troubles). Lately though I've thought about getting more RAM up to 1 GB. Since this is my first Mac I've owned plus never buying RAM for my PC neither (something I want to do too) is there anything I should look out for? What type would work best with my current laptop? Suggestions?

    Search this site as this topic has been covered ad nauseum.

    However, Kingston ram has worked best for me when upgrading from Apple's usually paltry oem modules. Lifetime warranty.

    I recommend any memory that uses either Samsung or Hynix chips, as Apple seems to prefer them and because I've never had an issue with either. is a good place to look. is also recommended. Good luck :)

    I'd also check Other World Computing ( I've bought all of my RAM from there and i've never had a problem. I've also noticed that Powerbook RAM prices have been dropping for a while now. Should check it out.
