Thanks to the fine people at Buffalo Technology my Powerbook is now equipped with the maximum 1.25 GB of memory. The difference is amazing, like night and day. My efforts to completely switch my everyday tasks to the Mac have been hindered by the lower screen resolution of the 12″ and the sluggish performance. The screen size has pretty much become a non-issue with some monitors I inherited and Synergy, I assumed the performance problems were due to it just having a slower processor, but all my Mac friends assured me that OS X just needed memory to breathe. They were right. I want to open every program on the system just to watch it.

I too am a deeply happy camper with a similarly maxed out 12″ Powerbook. What a difference a gig makes…
Weird – I don’t see any 1GB SODIMMs on their site at all … was just about to order from crucial. Where’d you get it?
I got it direct from their office. I would give them a call.
It is difficult when coming over to the mac to believe the seemingly innane cries of “the Proc is fast enough!” and “get more ram” when you just know that it is the other way around.
Glad to see you have upped the ram in your PB, I am going to be doing the same with my baby in the next week or two.
