    Newegg lowered the price of the RAM and also is offering free three day shipping, so now is your chance! :D This is high quality RAM, rated 5/5 and many reviews document it working great in Macbooks! Also has a lifetime warrenty if anything may go wrong :)

    This also works in the Mac Mini and Intel iMac. :)

    Worked for me. Great find for nicely priced RAM SuperSnake2012- I think that I might have to buy a stick so that I can max out the RAM in my MacBook Pro. :)

    NewEgg always has cheap RAM. The 1GB stick I used in this iBook works amazingly and it cost me like $100. :)

    I just bought this last week! I kept monitoring their site for a sale but finally gave up.

    This RAM is great! I placed it in the Macbook and ran the hardware test and memtest/rember without any issues at all.

    Parallels flies now and OSX boots up in no time at all. Highly recommended.

    (By the way, you do have to use a bit of force to push the new RAM sticks in, so make sure to note how far the stock sticks are in before removing them so you can have a good idea on how far to push.)

    Hrmm

    I am very tempted to order two of these for my 2.16 MBP and one for my Girlfriends 2.0 black MB. So tempting.. Think I am going to pull the trigger!

    Anyone have any tips?

    Nice find! It's recieved nothing but 5's and 4's (and only 2 4's). I think I'll be getting this instead of OWC.

    In other words, all the intel macs so far use the exact same ram.

    Well

    I just bit the bullet. Purchased two 1 gig sticks for my notebooks. I will let you know how it works once I get it installed. Thanks!

    Really? Apple's site says the Mini uses standard desktop type DIMMS.

    http://www.apple.com/macmini/whatsinside.html

    I believe all of the other Intel machines use SODIMMS though.

    It's a typo on Apple's site. The intel Mini uses 200 Pin 667 MHz SODIMMs

    Oh, gotcha. Probably the only way to squeeze 2 slots in there anyway.

    that seems like a pretty significant typo! and should be changed right away.

    alas, apple hasnt given me admin privileges yet for their website, so i cant fix it.

    G.Skill makes high quality memory, used them a lot in various PCs. Too bad NewEgg doesn't ship overseas :mad:.

    Datamem has 2 gigs for $168. That's $18 more for product sold by a known seller.
