I doubt it would support 2.5GB if it's advertised as 1.5GB. But I guess the only way to be sure is to buy an iBook and wait.Legacy said:Now I cant find any 1GB chips but, in the future when there are single 2GB chips, can the iBook's max memory support 2.5Gb? Apple is saying tops 1.5GB but there are no 2GB laptop memory chips atm...what happens when theyre available?

Of that i am not sure but i would presume that they would be accepted by the iBook, like the new eMac's can take 2gigs when apple only sais they can take 1gig,Legacy said:The chips will be there, but is there anything Apple does to prevent the notebook from recognising 2GB?
No, that's a risky presumption. Like crazyeddie says, it completely depends on whether the memory controller can count that high. If the individual chip on the module has twice the amount of RAM in it, that means the memory controller has to be capable or reading those addresses.shadowmoses said:Of that i am not sure but i would presume that they would be accepted by the iBook, like the new eMac's can take 2gigs when apple only sais they can take 1gig,
