    Never understood some people. To be more helpful, I had a great experience with OWC for my PB 12' rev. B. At the time I bought, their price was the best for the Samsung memory. That memory is said to be the one that Apple uses. Another name tossed around here is Crucial, though there is some experience that they play browser games on pricing.

    So you don't think it'd be a good idea? I'm not having a dig at budaapple, or anyone else who wants to ask. But this question is asked ALL THE TIME (a minimum of once a day), and a sticky would be beneficial.

    Sorry, if I miss understood the tone of your post. Would have been different if you had added something more direct to answer the question asked, until a sticky is offered.

    Also many don't "see" the rest of the forums here. And a problem with a sticky is that a thread can get pretty long. As an example with the RAM question, someone might only get through a screen or two, and miss info on Crucial's browser driven pricing discussion.

    And then you get into a situation of how many stickies would there be in each forum group. For it could end up with more stickies showing in the forum overview first page. Not sure what a good answer is.

    I agree that there are many questions repeated here. Many I have chosen to ignore. RAM on the other hand is something that I will chime in on, only because of the "Crucial is the god of RAM" mantra.

    Outpost.com has a generic 1GB PC2700 SODIMM for $159.99 that has worked well for me. I agree a sticky would be helpful. Or people could do a search.

    The price difference from Crucial is not "browser driver" but rather "cookie driven". If you visited certain competitor websites (I don't know which ones exactly) then the price at Crucial is higher. Its really more like a loyal customer discount than trickery.

    1 gig ram

    The fabled Outpost 1 Gb generic SODIMM is a one-year warranty product (!), is now priced at $179.99 and is presently unavailable (as checked on Oct 13).

    I still say it's better to deal with a firm that knows Macs.
