Just wondering if the brand of RAM that one should use in a G4 17" laptop should matter? Compatibility etc...? What brand does apple use?

Generally apple uses Samsung, but I recommend using Corsair or Kingston if you want to add more ram. Try to stay away from el cheapo generic ram, OS X is quite picky.

Generic RAM, so far, in my case, has worked fine. My iMac is running Generic RAM and so is my Beige G3. No problems to report, probably never will be problems with it, either. People seem to be on the edge about Generic RAM, but I have yet to experience any problems with "cheap" RAM.
