    Hello eveyone, I am a first time user so please excuse any blunders I make. Can one use Apple SDRAMPC100 in a Pentium based machine?

    If your PC uses PC-100 or 133 RAM then you can use apple Pc100 RAM in your computer. :)

    I have some bad experience with PC ram before. It's an elcheapo notebook ram that works fine on a Wintel laptop. But when I clonk it in my iBook... it will never awaken from it's 'sleep'. Have to force restart everytime. Come to think of it, ever since I bought my iBook, during those few days are the only time I experience kernel panic with OsX.

    Take out the offending ram solves everything, but it's unbearably slow running OsX WITH 128MB, so I just went ahead and buy an Apple 256mb ram. It's been smooth sailing eversince.

    Maybe it's due to the extremely elcheapo ram I use, but lots of Mac users been having a terriffic experience with Crucial.

    Note: The spec of the ram is right, PC100 and so on...
