Powebook memory?

Postby maggot_brain » 2007-01-20 17:18

Hello everyone,

I've just installed Etch on a recently acquired iBook G3. It runs great except there's not enough installed RAM. I though I'd ask here as most Debian users are technically savy and I don't fancy messing about with Apple's technical support.

My question is can I install a generic notebook DIMM in it to upgrade the RAM or do I need to purchase branded DIMMs?

This is what I was thinking of getting for it:

Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated!

I don't use Apple/Mac that much. However, as a rule of thumb you should look for DIMM that your iBook G3 use, check if you can expand and what its max capacity etc (admittedly, I'm talking from the perspective of IBM and its clone PC) . I don't know much about "generic" hardwares in a Mac product.

well i selected the fastest G3 ibook in the memory selector on crucial.com and it reccomended thier normal PC133 SODIMM modules. So i suspect any brand of PC133 SODIMMs will be fine.

Thanks for the tips, I've found a local supplier that can actually fit it for me as well.
