    Okay guys...Last questions before I buy some ram for my G4 iBook (800MHz).

    I went to newegg...to search for 1G ram stick...and I searched under 200 Pin SO-DIMM, PC 2100.

    The only two they has were KINGMAX, and KINGSTON. Now of course I want the Kingston, but when I looked at it, everything lines up fine, but when ya go to the product link, it shows in the title that its used for Dell, like the product number is used for all the dell models...

    My question is this, when I search the Kingston website, for apple ram, or I just look under the PC2100 Ram search section, I get different product numbers, totally different products.

    So I am guessing that the ram that newegg is talking about is built for Dell, but it will work in any PC2100 labtop? Because the apple ram on Kingston's site is alot of money, and the others are just different in model numbers....

    Here is the product info for the newegg 1GB ram...

    And when you search on Kingstons site, for PC2100, 200-Pin SO-Dimm..

    http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/configurator/PartsInfo.asp?ktcpartno=KVR266X64SC25/1G


    I just want to find out all this info before I buy, incase you guys no more, and for anybody else that might need this info in the future...

    Thanks Guys!!

    Okay so an update...

    Been doing some digging online to see what I could find...and I should have looked a little deeper.

    The iBook G4 (800) only allows up to 640 MB......so thats why its been hard to find 1GB stick for this puppy....

    So, with that in mind....Not buying the ram yet was a smart choice...


    So I think I am going to go with Crucial/Kingston/Samsung on the ram...

    For those having a iBook(800MHz) and wanting to upgrade....here is the Kingston ram ya need...

    And I can find the Crucial ram easy...but what do ya guy think about this ram?? Its I'm guessing the same found in Apple's..

    Let me know what ya think about that ram VS. Crucial's VS. Kingstons...

    any ram will be fine, as long as it works. some brands of ram are more reliable to work than others, quite a few people here are partial to crucial. I bought a stick of ram from a brand that i had never heard of off of newegg, and it works fine.
