Why? These places will most likely have better prices than anywhere you'll find online.

But if you *do* need an online retailer...NCIX.com is pretty good for everything. And they'll price match Canada Computers etc.

canadacomputers and ncix are exhaustively stocked in quality parts, if you don't find it between those two, i don't know where you're gonna find it

Are you planning on doing some overclocking on your laptop, or why the need for such high quality ram. I personally don't think there's a need for the highest quality ram unless you're looking to push it's limits, or, your mobo is sensitive to certain types of ram.

what revision of the powerbook do you have?

Note: if its a revision A, then you will have to buy Samsung RAM. Only Samsung RAM will work in those machines. Any revision past A will take most any RAM.

BTW - Just buy from Crucial, you will get the best price, even after duty and shipping.

neither canadacomputer or filtech have the type of ram i need which is: Crucial or Kingston 1Ghz 200 PIN 333 MHz SODIMM

i have the 1.5 ghz 15" powerbook. all accounts say i should be getting high quality ram and there are many reports on the powerbook users forum of my rev. not working with lower quality ram.

i'll check out ncix.com. thanks.
