    DO NOT BUY RAM FROM APPLE. There is nothing special, or "Apple" about it.

    The Americans on the board will be able to recommend the best places to you, but I think newegg.com for Crucial memory is a favorite :)

    Apple RAM could be any one of those manufacurers: Hynix, Samsung, Micron and problably others aswell.

    Some might disagree, but i like to pay a few bucks more on well known brands (like crucial, samsung, kingston, owc) than buying a noname brand.
    These are cheaper than apple anyway... (most of the time half the price as apples RAM)

    The only reason that I can see for buying Apple RAM is for the one stop shopping it provides.

    Other than that you can get great RAM from the likes of OWC, and get the same stuff as what Apple sells for less.
