  1. macrumors regular


    Which iBook is faster (these refer to the latest 14" iBook):

    1 Ghz G4, 1.25 GB RAM
    1.2 Ghz G4, 768 GB RAM

    All other specs being equal, the first option is $158 more (with Crucial RAM). Which should I get?
  2. macrumors 65816


    1.2Ghz machine.

    You can always add RAM...can't add a speedier CPU.

    My opinion.
  3. macrumors 68020


    the 1.2 machine will be ok, with the time you can add more RAM if needed... 20% is pretty much for some people...
  4. macrumors 6502

    the difference between 256 and 768 is like light and day for even average users, however the difference between 768 and 1.25GB doesn't amount to much on an ibook with a slow bus
    that being said i'd go for the 768 MB RAM
    the slight processor boast isn't much for $2000 more between 1 and 1.2GHz but you also get the larger HD and AE, making it worthwhile
