    Kingston is decent, I have seen some defective Kensington RAM, but it was older stuff, how much? Check their return policy, make sure it is smooth so you can return the RAM easily if you have problems.

    i got a 1 gig stick for my PB 1.5 and i worked fine... Kingston seems okay...
    i'm hoping that 1 gig still will also work on the ibook i just ordered... ;)

    It's good quality memory, but Kingston does not guarantee it for use in Macs. The Mac RAM is model KTA-PBG4333/1G

    So it may be compatible or not, depending on what the SPD values are set to. Make sure you have a no-cost return priviledge and check who pays shipping.
