Hi everyone. First time posting and I have a question concerning RAM. <br><br>I have a Powerbook G4 15 inch 1.67 Mghz with 512 KB of RAM. I want to upgrade to 2 Gigs of RAM. I have 2 slots that can each take 1G RAM. I have the SuperDrive, and I upgraded to 100 Gig with 7200 RPM when I purchased the unit.<br><br>Apple support told me to get "PC 4200 DDR2 533" - not sure what that means.<br><br>I've searched on pricegrabber.com & ramseeker.com, lots of options! Can anyone reccommend a particular brand? I'm looking at Kingston, Samsung, also seen names like Corsair, Viking, Patriot, Smart Modular.<br><br>Also, how do I know if a particular brand is compatible with my MAC. or is that even an issue?<br><br>Thanks for any and all help you can give.<br>Mike<br><br>
Prices vary, but check out the options here. People swear by Crucial, but I've used Kingston and Samsung with no problems.<br><br>And welcome to the boards!<br><br>____________________________________________________<br>Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,<br>But to be young was very heaven!

I've used Datamem (click here) for over 15 years. Because I know I can trust them. I just bought a 1 Gig SODIMM from them for my MacBook Pro a few months ago. But, as Yoyo said Crucial is a god company too.<br><br>
