And does Apple use Micron for OEM?Definitely.

It was their main (sole?) supplier in the past, and I'm pretty sure they're still a primary source, if not the only one. You can of course buy direct from Micron--the well-known Crucial is a direct-market division of Micron.

Apple has always used a variety of manufacturers. Micron is one supplier but not a majority one, Samsung supplies the bulk of the Powerbook RAM, Hynix much of the DDR DIMMs. IBM less so now than in the past. Don't know the DDR-2 suppliers yet, but I think Samsung on both Powerbook and G5 RAM, at least that's what I see the most of.
Micron has never been the only Apple RAM supplier -- much as Crucial would like to foster that urban myth.
