    I understand that the new ibook RAM needs to be:
    200 PIN SODIMM- DDR - PC 2700. Is that correct. I want to upgrade to the max at 1.5 and i will buy memory from one of the companys. Does anyone know which RAM works best in MAC Computers. Viking or Kingston? Crucial? Thanks

    Like this hasn't been covered before. Try searching, but I'll answer it anyway. It uses PC2700 SODIMMs but not all RAM works in Macs. They are very picky. Assuming you are in the US, I'd look at datamem.com. Crucial is usually on the expensive side, but they are very good. Just make sure who ever you purchase it from guarantees it to work in your Mac.

    Crucial is ever so slightly more expensive but they have a reallllly good guarantee.
