I wanted to throw two sticks of 512 ram in my 15" 1 ghz titanium powerbook and I know that it currently has two sticks of 256mb PC 133 ram. However, when I went to the apple site (just to check prices), it suggested a 2700. My question is this: can I use 133 or 2700 ram as long as it is 144 pin?

It should clock the freqs down, but 133 and 2700 use different spacers, so you can't. Don't get apple ram, either. Go for crucial if you want good, expensive ram. Go to outpost or OWC for good cheap ram.

I assume you are talking about PC133, and DDR2700. The two are totally different memory technologies, so no, you can't use DDR2700 in a machine that takes PC133 memory.

Thank you for the replies. I ended up figuring this out for myself and ended up ordering the pc133 set from crucial, but I wanted to thank you for responding to my question.
