Revision to PowerBook G3 Wallstreet

Walter Galan

There are a number of components in the PowerBook G3 Wallstreet that can be cost effectively upgraded.
 
* '''Memory:''' The Wallstreet has two RAM slots. You can place a 256 MB chip in each one for half gigabyte of memory. Browse our Wallstreet [link|/Products/G3-Wallstreet/RAM/11/3|RAMlink|/Mac-Parts/PowerBook-G3-Wallstreet#0-RAM|RAM] selection for a chip that suits your need for speed. You must use a low profile chip in the lower slot, but the upper slot can be whatever you choose. Don't forget to install it using our free iFixit [guide|6|PowerBook G3 Wallstreet RAM installation instructions].

* '''Optical Drive:''' Wallstreets are not inherently able to play DVDs. They require a special DVD decoder that fits into the PC card slot. Even if you have the decoder, you can only watch DVDs in OS 9. It will not work in OS X or classic because Apple never developed the hardware for it.
