View Full Version : Memory for Apple Powerbook
05-06-2007, 03:00 AM
I'm looking to upgrade the memory on my apple powerbook and I was wondering is I should wait a bit to do it. I heard that the price of RAM will be dropping soon so maybe I should wait until it does? Also, aside from Crucial and Apple are there any other site I should buy from. Apple wants $300 for a stick of 1 gig. Crucial wants $119 for a stick of 1 gig. I want to kick it up to 2 gigs. My laptop is the 1.67ghz powerbook and I only have 512 of ram. I'm running OSX v 10.3. Any input would bre greatly appreciated.

Apples are *very* finicky about the RAM you put in them. I've had very little success with 3rd party RAM in any Mac. Since Apple heavily enforces MAP pricing, you aren't going to see much fluctuation in those prices at all.

But what about crucial ram? They gurantee that it work. "Working" and "working well" are two different things. We have used Mac memory in the past that was "guaranteed to work." It would work OK for about 30-45 minutes then kernel panic. It may work fine for you. If it does, great. But if it doesn't, your probably SOL.
