    I have a 3 yr old Titanium Powerbook w 512 meg of RAM, I think??
    First of all, how can I find out???
    Second of all, can I add more, I'd like to get it up to a gig of ram.
    Third, can I do it myself???? I've done it on PC's, so I'm figuring a Mac has to be easier.

    You can install up to 1 Gb of RAM by 2 x 512 Mb PC133 SODIMMs

    Instructions are here

    Choose a reputable seller who tests and guarantees compatibility with your specific model Mac, offers a lifetime warranty and a no-cost return if it doesn't work.

    Click on the Little Apple Symbol in the Top Left corner, And choose "About this Mac" the popup window displays Processor Speed, Memory(RAM) and what startup disk your using. Instructions for installing RAM:
    1. Turn you Computer off.
    2. You lift your keyboard up with the little tabs by the esc key and F11 keys:
    3. Pull the Tabs and lift the top towards you pulling slowly. Dont pull to far out cause the Keyboard Connecter cable is plugged into the Logic board.
    You can either Lay the keyboard Face down on the bottom part of you Tibook or unplug the keyboard and set it aside.
    4. You will see the RAM slot in the middle, with an empty slot for the new RAM.

    I have the Same Tibook you have... i bought some ram about 2 years ago to help with Adobe Software. Choose from some of the following retailers: ~$115 for 512MB This one has lifetime warranty for just $10 more than the others. sometimes the Most expensive, in this case its actually very resonably priced. - great price, Great reliability
