Yes, DDR2 667Mhz so-dimm is the ram you need (aka notebook ram).

You'll need a card reader that plugs into your USB.

Most places sell them ~ $20.

Or you may be able to connect your cybershot straight in via USB or firewire - don't know about that as I've never had one (cybershot that is)

Nope, use the USB cable to connect the cybershot to the mac, or use a usb memory card reader

Just plug your cybershot into the computer via usb.. You can invest in a card reader but i don't see the point. Unless your camera does not have USB2.0 and you need the photos extra quick :)

There's super cheap Sony memory stick card readers available at Ted's Cameras on Rundle Street (As of last weekend).

I have a Cybershot and that plugs in via USB... just for some reason I have to eject its card before I can unplug the camera.

Hi,

If you're not used to a laptop you'll find installing Quicksilver makes a missing mouse a lot less hassle. Other people might recommend other launchers but Quicksilver is my choice and the fast moving newcomer in the field.

Oh, and if you're moving from a PC then you'll probably want a copy of OpenOffice if you don't have the MS dreck so you can open all those old files.

One final thing, you'll notice that your computer crashes less and things just seem to work. This is not an unusual condition, welcome to a world of real operating systems. <grin>

Heh, you gotta check if they are using hynix chips.

there have been cases where batches of kingston RAM not play well with the macbook.

Best thing to do is to bring the macbk down to test on the spot.

If it boots, you are good to go =]
