    Hey guys, I have a 17" Powerbook with a gig of ram and i was thinking of adding another gig stick to my laptop. However I don't want to go with the one from the apple site just because it is so damn expensive. I was wondering if you know if it is at all possible to run a different brand of memory, and if it has any defaults in doing so. thanks.

    Sure it is. Just make sure that the memory you purchase is of the correct spec. I've used and highly recommend either Crucial or Corsair memory; they're both slightly more expensive than the cheapest no name stuff, but they're worth it.

    If you don't know what kind of memory you need, go to www.crucial.com and use their "Memory Advisor" to plug in your system, etc. and it'll tell you what memory you need.

    for those who don't know, Crucial ram is the ram that Apple buys, tests and labels Apple RAM and resells it. It is by far the best RAM for the Apple computers.

    I've got an extra stick of Crucial, removed from my old 1.5Ghz 17" Powerbook.

    $100 and it's yours.

    If he doesn't buy that off you, I'll probably do so in a month or so (gotta get Xmas presents bought first). :bigthumb:
