    Go to SLS's the PA Mart. Ask for Leslie or Marvin, they should be able to answer your questions. It's about 99SGD if I'm not wrong.

    Should be an SO-DIMM -133MHz if you wanna do on ur own.

    got my 3rd party, for my powerbook, do check how many slots the ibook has if u wanna do it on ur own. Rumours that micron works best with apple... but i have kingston in my desktop... works fine.

    Default ram

    Hey thanks for the info, SO-dimm 133 can still be easily bought from sim lim right?

    Yup i bought my 512mb at sim lim after i got my G3 ibook last year.

    I got mine for $210, dunno whether the price drop or increase?

    All the shops there are big time cheats man. Bloody indian shops all are run by one syndicate or something. In their price list, they put $210, once you go into the shop, they will say out of stock but they can get it for you for $230

    I went to at least 3 shops, all said the exact same thing and all Indian


    2 hrs of walking later, i finally found this tiny shop at the corner that sold for $210 that THE PRICELIST LISTED as the selling price. I was so pissed by then already. I just walked in and retorted," This better be the selling price you're selling this ram" To my surprise, they said yes (must be never join the sydnicate) and i bought it there and installed it right in front of them.

    Yup, but its relatively more expensive becos its "old" RAM and manufactures no longer produce them. I got my 512MB RAM DDR 266hz for $180.
