I thought that the PB only took up to 1GB so-dimms... Could be wrong.gangst said:

I don't think that OS X has a 4 GB limit... Perhaps per DIMM limit of 4 GB? Anyhow, it's usually the logic board that limits the RAM. It's incapable of addressing that much memory.gangst said:i doubt ringing aapple will help me, probably just annoy me lol. does the logic board limit the maximum ram or does the os? because os x 10.3.7 can activley use 4gb and so can windows xp. If thats the only limitaation it should work. Any of you guys know if the 12inch logic board only allows a max. of 1.25gb?
Its the 32-bit datapath and such. The 32-bit datapath gets you accessing calls for up to 4 GB of RAM. 24-bits got you 8MB, but there was a patch that Apple released to circumvent that (32-bit dirty). 64 bits gets you a huge amount of calls. To many to remember . But the OS can use the swapfile on the harddrive as a cheating way to get more than 4 GB of RAM.hcuar said:I don't think that OS X has a 4 GB limit...

can you give a reference to backup your claim? because i don't think you are right.mgargan1 said:simply put... no. You can not use a 2GB module, the machine will only see 1GB of it. Plus, you have two slots on your machine, unless you have a 12", why pay more for a 2GB module?
I was going to say the exact same thing, and also point out older iBooks.jxyama said:can you give a reference to backup your claim? because i don't think you are right.
rev. A 12" PB was listed as having max. 640 MB (128 built-in + 512 in one slot) but we all know that 1 GB SODIMM can be added for 1152 MB (1024 + 128 MB) - all recognized.
i don't see any reason why 2 GB won't recognized.
