I recently recieved an old 12 inch ibook (from about 2001) w/ a 600 MHz g3 processor (yes i know old and slow but hey... it was free and im not complaining, besides im actually quite fond of it.) I was thinking if i get the money about maybe upgradeing the ram since i highly doubt ill get a new laptop anytime soon.
So i was wonder.... does anyone outhere know if the ram for mac's is proprietary? Do i have to buy it from apple? or can i just find normal ram that will fit? It would be much easier on me ... and my wallet, if i can use typical ram. i looked on apples site and they wanted like $150 dollars for 512Mb
One more question...
Currently inside of it there is the built in 128 Mb and i think a 256 chip (i get an odd total like 300 sumthing)
Would it help speed her up if i replaced the 256 with a 512, or would it be a waste of money?
Thanks for any and all help and/or advice.
