I asked this question during a presentation at Common in Germany.  Of the
several dozen people in the room, no one had the guts to test the theory.

My guess is that they are somehow different.  Since 256MB for my 170 cost me
over $2k and the same memory at the time for my PC would have cost me about
$300, I sure HOPE there's a reason.

But..  would you test your $2K memory in your PC and risk frying it?  Or,
would you risk your $20K 170 with PC memory.  Worse - would you trust
running your nice stable 170 with cheap PC memory?

I'd be curious of anyone knows for sure...

Hi

I am new to this list.
I want to upgrade my model 170 with some extra memory.
I have seen from the system handbook that the model 170 contains DIMM 
modules. Are these the same modules you put in your PC or is it special 
memory?

Maarten
