    I've just got a the new 12" G4 iBook which takes PC 2100 ram. Is it OK to put PC2700 ram in it? I know it won't be any faster what I want to know is will it work OK and could it cause any harm?

    Im pretty sure you can

    I dont think you would have any issues (or cause damage) if you used a PC2700 stick, just don't use anything slower than PC2100.

    i'm sure it would work fine but it would only run at 2100. its just like putting pc133 ram in a system with a 100mhz bus. it will work but only run at pc100. also, all ram is a system will only run as fast as the slowest chip you have.

    The reason I asked is that I bought my machine with a 512 upgrade which kept alernating between being 256 and 512. I took it back to my dealer who said all he had was 2700 as Apple were out of stock of 2100 cards. He took my card out and put it back in again and it seems so far to be staying at being 512. Must've just been seated badly. And now when I check, I see the card has been 2700 all along. My dealer said something about that might be why it didn'r read right because of a switching problem which I think is like most of his computer information - completely wrong and crap.
