    I'm thinking of bidding on this unit, however, I do not understand the problem. Can someone explain. Thanks.

    iBook G4s have some on-board RAM and a RAM slot for expansion. Sounds like the on-board RAM is bad.

    The auction is using the wrong spelling. It's SIMM (Single Inline Memory Module), not SIM.
