    I've tried searching this, but couldn't find anything.

    I have a 12" iBook G4 1.07GHz and I want to upgrade the RAM from the base 256MB.

    Crucial.com lists RAM for both the G4 1.0GHz and 1.2GHz.
    Apple.com lists RAM for the G4 1.0Ghz and 1.2GHz.

    Ummm... I'd rather buy from Crucial ($180 vs $300), but I need to know which type to buy. Any suggestions?

    If you're asking for which computer to buy the RAM, buy the memory listed for the 1.0ghz iBook, that's what you have. Other than that I'm not sure of your question, really, since you seem to have found the memory options at Crucial.

    You'll get a better price from Data Memory Systems

    The RAM you want is a PC2700 DDR SODIMM. The machine is specified for a PC2100 but you can use a compatible PC2700 and it will be moveable to a number of other Powerbook G4's and iBook G4's.

    This model is considered and called the iBook G4 1 GHz.

    I dunno where honestly the extra .07 GHz came from. o.o

    Its known by apple as the iBook G4 (Early 2004)

    Oh, and in regards to your broken screen, I may have one up for sale shortly. Lemme know if your interested.

    Worked Great

    Ordered 1GB of RAM last Thursday, got it Friday morning. Installed, and now my iBook is zipping along with 1.256GB of RAM. WHAT a difference! haha...

    Just curious as to why you bothered to upgrade the RAM in the 1Ghz iBook when the 1.2Ghz has double the HD and a faster processor? Do you use the 1Ghz instead?
