I am using this in my iBook :


   Size:	1 GB
   Type:	DDR SDRAM
   Speed:	PC2700U-25330
   Status:	OK

There was some issues with the pc2100 the machine would not boot. do  
not know why it kept giving the bad memory sond at startup.

The very nice people at Memoryx and I tried half dozen sticks of 2100  
and kept getting the same problem.

Put it the PC2700 SDRAM and it worked right away and has been  
chugging along nicely ever since.

Good luck


iBook G4 1.33 GHz 1.25 GB RAM
