View Full Version : pc2700 RAM compatibility in 12" powerbook

2nd February 2005, 07:45 PM
Hi, I ordered a 512 meg stick of RAM for my 12" powerbook (the non-DVI model) which was supposed to be pc2100 as this was the type of RAM that had previously been it. However, I received a pc2700 stick and installed this and it is currently working fine, but I just wanted to see if anyone knew whether this could cause some problems? I only ask because I have read so much on the internet about the importance of having the correct type and brand of RAM in Macs in order to avoid problems.

Just for reference, the brand of RAM is AMICROE. Thanks in advance, Nick

Generally speaking, faster RAM shouldn't cause you problems, it just doesn't run at the faster speed (your sustem becomes the limiting factor).

There are other compatability issues, but it sounds like your RAM is working fine.

Always run the hardware test CD after installing RAM.
