    Hi,

    does anyone know how much memory would the PowerBook G4 (the very last one, 1.67GHz with DL SD and 15" HD) take?

    apple-history.com says 2GB, but is that limited by the motherboard or by the fact that when this machine went out of production, 2GB sticks weren't available yet?

    Thanks.

    Nope, won't work, ever. It's a hardware limitation of the memory controller on the motherboard. 2 GB ( 2 x 1 GB SODIMMS) is all you're going to get.
