    Yes, it works on the MBP.

    What I am wondering is if PNY is a good brand. It just reminds me of PINOY too much.

    I had a PNY Nvidia Video Card, and I had no problems with it.
    I think they're legit.

    Wow, thank you for posting this on here. I have owned PNY memory on my XP deskptop for over 3 years now and it has been great. If you can buy this for your Macbook Pro, I encourage you to do so.

    Thanks for the heads up on this! Just ran down the road and picked one up.

    Now, does anyone need to buy a 512 MB stick? =)

    EDIT: Holy crap! Dumb me -- I thought Apple made the 1GB of RAM as two 512MB sticks... just popped the machine and saw that one of the memory slots was empty! My lucky day!

    two sticks required?

    got 2 x 256 in my MP. Apple recommends 2 sticks of the same type. Is this true or can I stick a 1GB ram stick and leave the remaining 256 stick? thx.

    This will work for a normal core duo macbook right? A quick answer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Compusa price match with a $30 rebate!

    FYI, went into BestBuy and was sold out. Walked over to Compusa with a print of the web ad and they honored the price with rebate ($89-$30 rebate).This put the total price at $60!

    Interesting. I was wanting to upgrade my intel Mini to 1gb, and I have a giftcard!
