View Full Version : 12" PowerBook RAM

11th April 2005, 10:55 PM
ok... so 256 mb RAM totally sucks on my G4 PB. i definitely need and am going to get some more. one question i have is, how many slots are there for RAM in the 12"? i want 512mb so is it ok to get another 256 and chuck it in to have a combined 512 mb?

also, is this something i can easily do myself? i have only ever installed RAM on a desktop PC so i don't have much experience with hardware installation.if anything happened to my precious PB, i would probably cry.

my next question is: does anyone have 512mb powerbook RAM they're keen to sell me (or give me if you're extremely generous)?
