Can I desolder the built in RAM to get more than 1.25gig?
I have an ibook g4 which I'd love to continue using as a backup computer for some audio work I do. I think I need just a bit more than the max amount of RAM available in standard configurations, 1.25 gig. I'm wondering how hard or worth it might be to desolder the puny 256 meg ram chip from the mother board and add another 1 gig chip? I'm afraid I already know the answer (I'm assuming, #1 possible, but #2 very difficult or #3 computer won't address larger ram chip in that slot). If that is the case, would it be possible to put in a 1.42Ghz logic board in the ibook? Would an SSD help the situation speedwise? Any and all responses appreciated. Thanks for your help in advance.
Is this a good question?
