    I have a 12'' powerbook that I want to get a gigabyte of ram for it. I know that it has 256 mb builtin right now and I know that I can fit 1.25 gb max.. but i dont know which kind to get specifically. I have been searching for my computers specs on apples site for awhile now but I can't find the right one..

    1.33ghz 12'' powerbook

    PC-2700 SO-DIMM DDR333

    Please do not ask about Dual Channel...it does not support it. And do not ask about configurations. It does not support that. Oh, and Check http://www.newegg.com and http://www.ebay.com for deals.

    Thank you for visiting your local All About RAM Discussion Boards

    Many places that sell RAM have either a set of questions that put you to the type of RAM that you need ( http://www.crucial.com/ ) or have lists of each type of Mac that you can find your own in ( http://www.canadaram.com/ )

    That being said, the above poster is correct, PC2700 SO-DIMM.

    Yeah, well I know my computer hardware. I did not even have to look that question up. I do a lot of odd jobs and fixing people's computers is one of them. In fact I am going to someone's house later tonight to install 1 GB of RAM for them. Nice quick 30 dollars.

    I would stay away from Tiger Direct on principle alone...they sued Apple to try to stop them from using the word "Tiger."

    NewEgg has everything. It has software, hardware, extras, DVDs, CDs, (EVERYTHING). It is really the site that I go to because I find that it has the lowest prices of anywhere including Ebay sometimes. But I find it to have a really nice selection as well. I think the selection is significantly larger than Tiger Direct. So you can search there anytime you want and find almost anything. They have a wonderful site. I love it. Built a few computers by it too. They are really reliable.
