    I need a 512mb stick for my iBook.



    That leads me to say that I also need an external FireWire harddrive (min:40gigs) for my iBook.



    I have the very last rev of the iBook before the Macbooks.



    I pay through paypal and if anyone wants to trade; I have a $50 Toys 'R Us gift card and a $50 Banana Republic giftcard.

    This is the last iBook G4 then? You need DDR PC2700 RAM.

    You can get the 512 from DMS for $29 or $32, plus no NY tax. But I would highly recommend considering the 1 Gb module at $69. There's only one socket in the machine, best to max it out.

    Especially 'coz it's gonna cost you freaking $150 at the Apple Store for the 512.

    Many people like Crucial, but my one purchase with Kahlon was a good experience. Prices are a bit more competitive.

    I have two 512 sticks of PC2700 333mhz that I'm trying to sell for $25 shipped for each stick. One is a viking and the other is Kingston. PM me if you're interested.

    ibook G3's require pc100/133 sodimms while G4's require pc2100 sodimms(800-1.2ghz) but the 1.33ghz+ uses pc2700

    i'm also looking for a 512mb stick of pc133.

    added:
    oops, didn't see that part

    why not get a 1gb stick then?

    I didn't know the max was 1.5 gigs. I thought it was 1 gig.

    Well now I'm looking for one of these:

    1GB 200 Pin DDR PC2700 333Mhz 128x64 CL 2.5 SODIMM

    the max is 1.25gb. 256mb is stock on the mother board. and you can add a 1gb stick. my g4 is maxed and runs tiger extremely well. yours is faster and will have no problem running leopard.
