    Thanks.
    They seemed to be out of stock for a very long time. I might get one when my powerbook seems to be running slow.

    OK, here we go again:
    The seller does not guarantee compatibility with the Mac. They provide no detailed description. Buy at your own risk. Check the return policy - who pays shipping, is there a restocking charge?

    The module illustrated uses old-school TSOP chips, every modern design (Samsung, Infineon, Nanya, Siemens) uses MBGA chips which throw off less heat and consume less power.

    If you are in the USA and want Powerbook guaranteed RAM, in stock, MBGA design, lifetime warranty, for $209 ($229 for Samsung original) go to Data Memory Systems http://www.datamem.com/AMM12.asp

    Thanks

    Yeah..... So i have been getting freezes and kernal panics.... Run Apple Hardware Test and the Ram Fails everytime (even after reinstalling it). Outpost will issue me a refund for the ram. So i will either get some Patriot ram from Outpost ($180) or the ram from the link above.
