    I would highly recommend upgrading to at least 1GB of RAM. You should notice a nice improvement in your PowerBook's speed/performance.

    I would go with Crucial.

    Assuming you have the latest PowerBook here are the chips you may buy [from them] http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.asp?model=PowerBook+G4+1.5GHz+(15-inch+Display)&tabid=AM

    I've had nothing but experiences with them and have only heard good things with them. You can't really guarntee that the RAM off eBay is positively 100% going to work even though it says it works with the machine. Crucial tests them.

    Hope that helps! :)

    It is extremely easy to install RAM, so don't be worried about that ;)
    Maybe a 2-3 minute process?
