I could see a rev-2 of the PowerBook G4 but I don't see one for the iBook just yet. It's still very new. I don't know... maybe some one else knows something that I don't. I know one thing. The iBook is a very nice computer. Good buy too. If you compair what you get with the Current TiBook to the iBook and look at the pricing. The iBook is very resonable. I have a friend that has one... She loves it. Takes it every were with her.
Apple doesnt seem to like to give much RAM with their hardware. My 867 only cam with 128. Even if they were offering more, I would have BTO with the min that I could. Apple RAM is too pricy. Just get some nice name brand 3rd party RAM. I got 512MB siticks for about $90.00 a pop. And they came with a life time warrente. I have seen cheeper... like $40.00 a stick.. But its the cheep stuff. RAM for the iBook is going to be a little bit more... but its worth it. RAM is so cheep right now too.
i agree, screw buying ram directly from apple, it's way overpriced. 3rd party works just fine-and who needs to pay a $30 installation fee too(most apple resellers charge). it's so damn easy to install ram.
you won't see a price drop in the ibook...it's already at a good price, selling at a high volume. To lower the price would only encourage potential PowerBook buyers to buy the iBook instead...which is basically what happened after the iBooks were introduced.
Can anyone recommend a good source of RAM in the UK for the ibook? I'm quite new to this MAC malarky - used a PC for years until they gave me an imac at work. Since then have been drooling over various mac sites.
Is there any difference between the different manufacturers in terms of reliabilty, speed, compatibility etc?
And how much do you reckon you need to put into the ibook?
