Is 512mb DDR333 on a 12in powerbook good enough? or do i need 768 to do a little video editing
For VE the more RAM the better.
No matter what you do, the more RAM the better. However, I use iMovie with no problem with only 256mb, so for iMovie 512mb should be fine, but get 768mb if you can afford it. If you use Final Cut or another more intense editor, you probably want at least 512mb. No matter what you do, the more the better, but 512 would probably be alright if you can't afford any more.
in a few months when i get enough money ill buy a stick of 512mb or 1024mb
but how do i tell what rev. a powerbook is
im gonna buy it from the apple store?
If you are getting 512MB, go to crucial.com
Their price is so much better and their guide is straight forward on choosing the right memory.
If its a 12":
Rev A= 867 mhz
Rev B= 1.0 ghz
Rev C= 1.33 ghz
They also have differences like standard bluetooth and airport extreme, but the processor is the main way to classify them.
If you want to buy Ram, try www.dealram.com, I heard that they have a very good deal with free shipping there.
