    That is so totally wrong it's not funny.

    Those links are PC2700 DIMMs for PowerMac G5 towers. They don't fit even if you fold them in half. ;) The iBook takes SODIMMs

    Seriously, choose RAM for an Aluminum Powerbook G4 12" 1/5 GHz and you'll be safe on the iBook G4/PC2700 until the rest of the web sites catch up with us and list the new machines :D

    Thanks

    The new iBook manual states:

    Now isn't that confusing when we look at the tech specs?
    So what shall we take as the truth?

    Laptops always use SO-DIMM, they need the smaller form factor.

    Well, ,since there isn't any such thing as PC2400 RAM I would question the accuracy of that manual.

    Will i really notice much of a difference if i buy 512MB more for a total of 1GB or RAM compared to maxing it out w/ a 1GB stick? I installed 256+512 onto my 1.1 Athlon and find i dont use 1/3 of it most of the time. In other words is the difference in performance worth the extra 50 bucks id spend on buying the Gig strip?
