    I have just been offered a 12' stock ibook for a very very good price. My first Mac :)

    I want to upgrade the memory. The best price I can find is DDR400 SODIMM 140-Pin. Will this word in the iBook with the DDR333 memory?

    Thanks

    Yes, the 400 MHz (PC3200) will down clock to 333 MHz (PC2700). Just make sure it's a smaller laptop sized DDR SODIMM and not a desktop full length DIMM.

    Just one more thing. I've been trawling through the forum and see others say you need 200-pin, this RAM is 140-pin. Will it still work well?

    You do need 200-pin RAM...144-pin RAM will not fit.

    Use a reputable vendor like OWC, Crucial, or DMS with a Memory Advisor that will tell you exactly what you need for your model.
