Installation is easy and straightforward. I have a 12 inch Powerbook 1.5GHz G4 and upgraded my RAM very easily. Just go to your User's Guide for you powerbook and follow the simple instructions. Basically, installation involves turning your powerbook over, taking out the battery, opening up the compartment with the RAM slots, and either directly adding RAM to an empty slot or taking a chip out and replacing it with another.

I bought my RAM at www.newegg.com. They had a great deal on 1GB chips (for about $119.00), but this was a couple weeks ago. I am sure you can find just as good a deal there. Or you could go to ebay. By the way, make sure you check your user's guide for the exact specifications of the RAM chip you require.

Hope this helps.
