    Completely affordable and easy to use! I am so happy I got the chip here instead of Apple, saved me hundreds! My computer was so sluggish and took forever to load everything, now it runs smoothly and quickly. The chip was really easy to put in, once I figured out how hard I had to push it into place, but it would have been nice to have directions with the package rather than having to look online (because my computer has to be off to put the chip in).

    I found the documentation of poor quality on the either of my Mac computers. I would not purchase this product.

      My young teenage daughter wanted a Mac and I purchased an old one, then used your website to buy more RAM. My origional plan was to ask a friend of mine to add the ram to the computer. He was busy, so I tried it and my first time ever doing this only took me 30 min. 15 min finding and watching a You Tube video showing me how. It fired right up, way faster, my daughter is happy and so am I.

              Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Apple iBook (G4 1.2GHz) System:

              I used this to upgrade my iBook G4 from 256 MB to 1.25 GB of RAM. It has helped with streaming video and websites that have a lot of flash, which was the main purpose for this product. It still doesn't stream videos super well, but it is faster. To be fair, the iBook G4 is 6 years old and I bought this RAM upgrade to see how much of a difference it would make.

                      I used it to load music in my new device. It has also speeded up my iBook.
                      Without it I probably would have needed to buy a new laptop.
