The current 12" PB's come with 256 built in, and either 256, 512, or 1GB added, a minimum of 512 installed.

I want to order one with the max, 1.25GB, installed...but would rather order the additional RAM from crucial to save some money. I'm not clear on what I need to order.

How many expansion slots does the 12" PB have. I assume the default minimum setup takes up 2 slots, for 512, which means I would need one stick of 756 to get to the max, but is there room for one more stick, or am I going to have to remover one of the default 256 sticks and buy a 1GB stick to replace it with?

Hope my question makes sense...thanks!

This can all be answered from Apple's website.

12" PB has 1 slot. It comes with 256MB in it. You can put up to a 1GB stick in it. (256MB is built onto the motherboard).

The 15" and 17" PBs have to slots for memory.

The 'book has one socket only, there is 256 soldered-on and a 256 SODIMM in the socket as stock -- so you will have to remove the 256 SODIMM to install the 1 Gb.

If you are going to Crucial, use their RAM configurator tool to choose the correct RAM for your machine.

If you are in the USA, I recommend looking at Data Memory Systems as an alternative to Crucial
