Hello.

About the last generation Powerbook G4/1,67MHz 15-inch with 1440 high
resolution [1]: Has anyone ever tried to install 2 x 2048M = 4096M memory
modules? Recently there are modules with the correct PC2-4200 533MHz DDR2
specifications of 2048 Mega Byte which haven't been available at that time.

The developer notes [2] clearly declare 2048M as the maximum configuration
level. Does this concern Apple's own operating system? Is this a
restriction of the hardware? Or does the restriction apply to the
Openfirmware?
The target operating system will be Linux.

Soon after this last version Apple discontinued the legendary Powerbook
series and published the Intel Macbooks. They had the same memory modules
like the last Powerbooks but with 4096M maximum configuration.


Regards,
Massimo
