Upgrading Powerbook G4 (Titanium) RAM

    Hi, still pretty new to Macs, but loving my journey so far!

    I would like to upgrade my 2 x modules of 256MB RAM, SODIMM, SDRAM, PC133 to 2 x 512MB modules... or a 1GB one?

    Does this mean it can't take - 512Mb PC3200 DDR SODIMM?

    Also, I flipped my PB over and unscrewed the back, but couldn't find where the modules would fit. Can anyone help with a diagram/pic?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    You can only put two 512mb modules in for one gig total. You lift up the keyboard from the top two tabs (go to pbfixit.com for a diagram) and take out the two 256mbs and plop in the new ones.

    Great stuff!

    Thanks for this! Ppl here are helpful as ever!

    Titanium Powerbooks can't take DDR SODIMM!
    You need to get PC133 SDRAM SODIMM!
    And yes, 2x512MB sticks is the max you can put in.

    The Chip Merchant has good deals on the RAM you would need. For Titanium Powerbooks.

    Thanks - but does anyone have any suggestions on cheaper RAM from the UK? I got one quote for 2 x 512MB mods for £115...
