    I bought a powerbook G4.

    The ram is 512 mb but i want to upgrade that.
    Is it possible to place two 1gb cards in each slot.

    That i have a total of 2gb ram?

    Me was told that the max of the powerbook G4 is 1 gb.
    Is that true? And when it is true,

    is it smart to buy a total of 1gb for the powerbook g4?
    Or doesn't make that any difference?
    Sorry for the bad english!:D

    and thx for helping me!

    Memory tells me (and mac tracker confirms) that your pb can take up to 2 gigs, two 1 gig sticks. It should make a big difference over 512 mb.

    OK thx,

    And is it important to look for ram memory with a high clocktime?
    i mean i have a 1,67 ghz. Can i buy memory with more than 1,67 GHz?

    thx

    1.67 is your CPU clockspeed and has nothing to do with your RAM. Your powerbook can support 2 PC2700 So-DIMMs. Nothing faster will work (or at least be beneficial).

    I think matched pairs of 1 gig sticks will improve performance as well.
