Peripheral Quick To Lauch Memory For iBook
Peripheral Enhancements has already announced memory modules for the iBook, the first of many no doubt. The company will be offering modules from 16 MB to 128 MB. According to Peripheral:

Peripheral Enhancements Corporation will offer immediate shipping on a full line of memory products that support the new Apple Macintosh iBook. Peripheral announces this information following the introduction of the new iBook, which was made by Apple iCEO Steve Jobs at the 1999 MacWorld Expo in New York City.

Peripheral Enhancements will offer customers immediate stocking on compatible memory upgrades even though the new iBook will not begin shipping until September.

Peripheral's memory upgrades for the new Apple Macintosh iBook will be marketed under the company's brand name The Memory EDGE(TM). Genuine Peripheral upgrades can always be identified by the bright blue "Memory EDGE" on each module, which indicates that the individual upgrade has been double- tested for quality and performance before shipment. Peripheral Enhancements will manufacture upgrades ranging in size from 16MB to 128MB, which are specially designed to accommodate the extremely fast 300MHz processing speeds of the new iBook.

The iBook comes standard with 32MB RAM soldered to the motherboard and has one slot for upgrade using Peripheral Enhancements's 16, 32, 64, and 128MB synchronous DIMM modules enabling purchasers to boost their machine's performance to its maximum operating capacity of 160MB of internal RAM.

The company's pricing on the new units ranges from US$35.95 for the 16MB module to US$279.00 for the 128MB upgrade.

The Mac Observer Spin: The iBook is going to be hot and with only 32 MB of RAM coming standard with the units, iBook owners are definitely going to want to upgrade to at least 64. There will no doubt be lots of competition between the manufacturers of memory and pricing pressure should be pointing down.
