This may be a stupid question but please enlighten me...

Has anyone heard of a mod in which you can change the onboard memory build into the motherboard of a Powerbook? So say for example: swapping the 256mb onboard memory on my powerbook with a gig and then placing another gig inthe empty slot? Just a thought......

Yes, but you won't do it.

I knew an apple tech that underwent the conversion on a damaged logic board to see if he could. IT is stupidly difficult and the time and possibility for failure woudl not warrant the gains. Buy a 1gig sodim giving you lots of memory. Remeber to do that hack you are solidering right the board in microsopically small sections that cannot touch or contact anything else.
A little bit of gear...
