    my girlfriend just maxed out her iBook G4 to 640mb, orphaning the old 128mb PC2100 so-dimm. will this chip work in an iBook G3? another friend of mine has a G3 iBook with only 128mb and we would like to give her this extra 128mb if it will work in her iBook.

    i know the G4's ram is 'faster' but would it work at the lower PC100 speed in the G3 iBook, or would it not even work at all?

    thanks.

    Nope, wrong RAM. I have had both the G3 and G4 iBooks. They are not the same stuff.

    The iBook G4 uses PC2100 DDR RAM, while the iBook G3 uses PC100 RAM. Sorry.
