    Its a typo. I googled STA-G5400 and got "SimpleTech STA-G5400/512 512MB PC3200 DDR 184pin DIMM". This is Power Mac Ram. Even if they upgrade the RAM in the PowerBook when the put a G5 in it, it will be a smaller more mobil RAM.

    That is a typo. If one wants to speculate, possible release dates for Powerbook G5s:

    1) WWDC 2005 - very unlikely, 10% chance PB G5 will debut by this time
    2) MacWorld 2005 Paris - unlikely, 25%
    3) MacWorld 2006 SF - unlikely, 50%
    4) WWDC 2006 - very likely, 75%
    5) MacWorld 2006 Paris - likely, 85%
    6) MacWorld 2007 SF - likley 95%
    7) WWDC 2007 - very likely 100% chance PB G5 will debut by this time

    enjoy :D

    WWDC 05 - 50% fairly likely
    Paris 05 - 70% likely
    MW 06 - 100% or G5

    Sorry, didn't read it closely enough. I thought it was a 2 GB kit, like they offer today. That should be in the $350 range. My mistake.
