I got one module from Apple. Would you conisder the RAM in the first section of dealram to be OK? Brands to avoid or suggest?

Or does this model use that system like my Pismo does? Reply 2 of 11 alcimedes Posts: 5,486member December 13, 2003 11:01AM Crucial sells good stuff. Reply 3 of 11 powerdoc Posts: 8,123member December 13, 2003 12:26PM The 15 and 17 inch Alubook have two SO-DIMM slots, who are exactly the same. Personnaly i just bought RAM from Dane elec (10 years warranty). It's good quality ram, (this is the RAM i get for my G5).

AFAIK, Crucial is the best. Unless you really want to overclock your mobo (bad idea IMHO), in which case I'd get Mushkin. Reply 6 of 11 rok Posts: 3,519member December 13, 2003 2:32PM transintl.com also sells good ram, and VERY good prices. that being said, i have always been a crucial customer for my professional customers.re: the slot apple installs in, it may be too late for this, but you have to confirm that they only installed ONE chip in the ibook. if so, they install it in the more difficult slot, so you don't have to worry about it, and leave the upper one blank. yes, apple charges WAY too much for ram, but i would rather have one large chip i never have to swap out, versus two smaller ones, one of which i would probably have to toss eventually if i ever wanted to upgrade.

Reply 9 of 11 stream this Posts: 19member December 14, 2003 4:45PM Crucial is definitely the way to go for budget ram. I'm using Crucial in my PowerBook G3 with no problems. For desktops I use Mushkin. Yea, they are on the pricey side, but you cannot beat the quality and warranty. Lifetime replacement warranty was one the factors that led me to Mushkin. I've used them in several systems and will continue to do so. Reply 10 of 11 sdw2001 Posts: 17,433member December 15, 2003 8:57AM Well it's a 15" Ai book....but anyway. I think crucial sounds good . Though I bought OWC once for my pismo and had no problem Reply 11 of 11 danmacman Posts: 773member December 15, 2003 12:00PM I just ordered a 12 inch alubook today and ordered a 256 stick for the open slot from crucial for $43, best deal I could find for that size, I was surprised - got free 2nd day shipping too.
