    my houemate has a powerbook G4, and my girlfirend has an iBook G4. he's recently put a gig of ram in it so he's got a 512MB dimm hanging about.

    does anyone know if it will fit in my girlfriends iBook or is it different?

    cheers guys

    Without getting technical, you can take Powerbook-spec RAM and put it in the iBook, but not the reverse.

    i think he bought the powerbook ram from crucial (the 512MB). so basically crucial ship the same ram out to powerbook and iBook users?

    Simple Answer:

    NO, however the PB ram will work in the iBook.

    Take Care. :)

    so is it worth doing? will it void the iBook warranty? will it overheat or something?
