    Am I the only one that COMPLETELY missed the fact that the two new powerbooks are using DDR RAM instead of PC133???

    The 12in is using PC2100 and the 17in is using PC2700.

    please tell me I am not the only one who didn't see this before.

    i knew the 17" did. jobs told me.

    but until i checked the 12" website i didnt even think about it. these new AiBooks are going to rip.

    let alone the cool kkeeybaord light. all in the same space as an imac screen (1").

    Good on ya apple.

    I know, I went nuts when I saw that too!

    266mhz DDR.

    Arent the powermacs at 166mhz?

    Does this mean new powermacs are on the way. I'm very confused about this whole RAM dealy..

    The PowerMacs use a 166MHz bus this means they have 333MHz DDR. 266MHz DDR thusly means it uses a 133MHz bus.
