12-inch Powerbook upgrade questions - Mac Portable

Hi, I'm about to buy a 12-inch Powerbook as a replacement for a Titanium G4 400 that I currently use. I have a couple of questions before taking the plunge, however: - I have three power adapters for my current PB, one yoyo-style and two of the small, portable ones. I leave one in each of the two places I work and carry one with me. Can I use these adapters with the new 12-inch Powerbook or do I need to go out and buy two more. They're not cheap items, so I'd prefer to use the ones I have, ...

    Default 12-inch Powerbook upgrade questions

    Hi,

    I'm about to buy a 12-inch Powerbook as a replacement for a Titanium
    G4 400 that I currently use. I have a couple of questions before
    taking the plunge, however:

    - I have three power adapters for my current PB, one yoyo-style and
    two of the small, portable ones. I leave one in each of the two
    places I work and carry one with me. Can I use these adapters with
    the new 12-inch Powerbook or do I need to go out and buy two more.
    They're not cheap items, so I'd prefer to use the ones I have,
    obviously.

    - I'm going to be buying the 12-inch Powerbook with 256 Mb of RAM but
    I'd like to upgrade this right away. Can I buy a generic 512 Mb
    DDR266 200-pin SODIMM from a PC store for this? I really don't want
    to pay a premium at a Mac store for what I suspect is a standard item
    unless I really have to.

    Thanks,

    JS

    Yes, you can use the ones you have.

    I can't quote the exact specs, but it is a standard chip. Have you ever
    used Ramseeker? <http://www.ramseeker.com/> It'll tell you exactly what
    you need and who has the lowest price.

    Enjoy your new Powerbook!

    Cheap RAM can be flakey - often the cheapest brands use parts which
    failed at higher speeds. OS X is notoriously sensitive to those kinds
    of problems; you get what you pay for. I'd buy a well respected brand
    like Kingston but not, as you say, from a Mac reseller if they're going
    to gouge you.
