    I just went to Crucials web site and all i have to say is WOW! Apple sure is rippin people off for memory but heres my my question. Will going from 768 memory in the new 1.33 ibook to 1.25 memory make a big difference? Or will it be only slightly noticable?

    No one can really answer that. It all depends on what you do on your computer. 768 MB is a good amount of ram for the average user. Give us some examples of your day-to-day computing and you'll probably get a more accurate answer.

    Crucial also overprices they ram, you can use both PC2100 and PC2700 SO-DIMM in your iBook.

    768 to 1280 should make a difference depending on what you do. :)

    Why is everyone so crazy about Crucial.com's memory?

    It is very good ram to begin with. Its probably the cheapest of the top of the line ram. That being said, you don't notice how good it is in the mac world because people don't normally overclock and such.

    I like crucial in my apple products because it is guaranteed to work. Other companies have life time warrenties, but many (I didn't say not all) don't guaranteed their ram to work in a specific computer.

    Editing video would probably be your biggest ram eater. When you are working with video, does you computer seem slow? If so, get more ram. Thats really all I can say.
