    I've got a 15" 1.5ghz PowerBook, with 512 mb of ram. I want to add 1GB of ram, whats the best online place to buy it? I've checked out Crucial and Datamem. Any other recommendations?

    Also, is it tough to install ram? I read the instructions in the book, seemed alrgiht, I'm not a computer guy at all. I think I'd probbably end up shocking the whole computer and killing it.

    Thanks
    Byron

    I'm not a mac guy so I don't have any recommendations on places to buy RAM, but installation is easy. Just make sure the laptop is powered down, if you're concerned, then remove the battery first. Just don't force anything.

    This is the place to buy memory:

    Crucial

    Just pick your model and they will give you prices. I've purchased thousands of memory modules from them.

    www.newegg.com and www.zipzoomfly.com are great. They will be cheaper than crucial.com You'll need 200 pin ddr333 so-dimm. I reccomend you look in the customer reviews on newegg until you find ram that someone else says works in your pb.
