    hey everyone, i'm a recent converter (windows to apple) and have this wonderful powerbook 15". i was told not to buy the extra RAM from apple and to just buy and install a 512MB card separately and for much cheaper.

    sounds good, but despite my cautiousness, I bought the wrong card! I know b/c the darn thing doesn't fit; not even close...

    Can some PLEASE make it really easy for me and tell me EXACTLY what 512MB RAM card I need for my powerbook? a link would be even better...

    I foolishly bought this:
    Kingston 512MB 333MHz DDR PC2700 DIMM CL2.5
    What am I just not getting?

    Thanks,
    Gmoney

    Assuming you have the new 15" Alluminum powerbook, here is what you are looking for: http://eshop.macsales.com/Catalog_Item.cfm?ID=6220&Item=OWC2700DDRS512A

    I have bought ram from this company (Other World Computing) before and have had great experience.

    You probably made the mistake of getting ram for a desktop computer, which in most cases, is physically larger.
