Unfortunately the largest memory module available for the iBook G3 is 512MB, so a G3 will never have more than 512MB plus what is on the board, usually a total of 640MB.

G4s, on the other hand, can take a 1GB module, so the max for a G4 is 1GB plus what is on the board, which can be up to a total of 1.5GB depending on the model G4 you have.

+ RAM: 128 MB of SDRAM soldered in place, expandable to 640 MB using one 1.25" 3.3V PC100 compliant SO-DIMM
