    I have a Powerbook g5 12" 1.5ghz computer and I was wondering what the maximum ram is, when It came out I think there was only the 1gb stick, but now there is the 2gb sodimm pc2700 chips. Will adding more memory than its designed to handle harm the computer? Because I am debating on getting a 1gb chip. But if it is possible I cant seem to find anything about it, but will it work effectively. :apple:

    I'm guessing you have a Powerbook G4 12" 1.5ghz. Most places only give a 1 gig chips for this particular computer. You can try, but if it doesn't work, you can't complain. G4 1.5GHz (12-inch Display)

    I notice OWC's prices have dropped to $60-70 for a 1 gig chip for the 12 incher. I've kept my I on this for my own 12" PB, and the price had been $90-100 for a long time.

    I wonder if it will continue to go down? I wish it was as cheap as the MacBook RAM, cause $70 is still a tad high just to jump from 768 to 1.25. Stupid soldered slot #1 :p
