    1.25 Gb or 1.5 Gb, depending which model of iBook G4 it is. There is either 256 or 512 soldered on, plus one DDR SODIMM socket which can take a 1 Gb PC2700 SODIMM (regardless of Apple's outdated spec which says 512 SODIMM only)


    It has to be a 9.5 mm tall drive, so whatever is on offer in IDE 2.5" harddrives. At least 160 Gb.

    You have one expansion slot which you can put in up to a 1GB chip of PC2700 RAM... so total it is the base 256 on the board plus 1GB... which is a huge amount compared to the processor.... up to 1.4 GHz. I have a 1.33 GHz with 512 mb of ram which does the job until I do graphically intense operations like watch a video/shockwave movie.
