RAM on new iBooks

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Probably a dumb question, but how does upgrading RAM work on an ibook? I understand that there is only one slot for interchangeable chips, but is there any ram soldered on to the mobo? That is, does the 128 mb that comes included take up the swappable slot, or can you add RAM on top of that 128? Thanks for any responses.

    The RAM that it comes with is soldered on the mobo. The slot which you can add RAM to is under the Airport Card slot, which is under the keyboard.

    What if a screw in the AirPort Riser gets stuck, and so do screws on the plate covering the mobo on the bottom!!!!

    I am DESPERATE! No one's suggestions are helping me get my stuck screws off my iBook! I've tried solder (practicing on other screws first!), superglue, etc! I am thinking maybe I can drill into the screw with a small bit (through middle) and either it will loosen the screw, or I can using a reverse bit to unscrew it. Also, does anyone think epoxy will be strong enough?
