iBook G4 12" 800 MHz-1.2 GHz RAM Replacement

5 - 35 minuten


Mijn probleem

Client wants more RAM, plus an Airport Extreme Card to access WIFI. Sounds ridiculous but believe it or not, the Airport Extreme Card was an Option, which means you need to pay extra for it when the iBook rolled out 10 years ago.

Mijn oplossing

Extremely easy following the step-by-step instruction, which is indeed a life saver. Thanks iFixit,

Just a little bit tricky with the setup and OS. As the iBook comes with OS X 10.4 Tiger, it doesn't support WPA security, so I had to upgrade it to 10.5 to make the card working properly.

Mijn advies

It was an enjoyable upgrade, just like fixing a vintage car. It did cheer me up when I see the iBook. See the photo? Look at the condition! Good as new! Its like just unboxed! The owner even keeps the plastic sheet and place it between the LCD and keyboard. She said she never ever gets any serious problem, except the faded, aged LCD for sure, even the battery is the one comes 10 years ago!

I've seen so many Mac's in extremely horrible conditions even only few months old, then I see this. People, please respect what you've got, if you abuse it, you definitely not deserve it, or calling yourself a user.

I do really think it will cost a big dollar if she keeps the condition as is.
