    Hey everyone,
    In a search for cheap RAM for my mac pro I stumbled across this website:


    Now you know what they say, If it seems to good to be true..., but then they claim that the vendor is Micron. According to my knowledge, Crucial is a division of Micron. I checked out Micron's website and it seemed pretty legit, except I could only find big Server RAM for sale. 18004memory.com also claims that this RAM is "Apple Recommended", though I can't find where this list of "Apple Recommended" RAM is. Maybe I just looked over it somehow. Has anyone every bought RAM from this site, or from Micron? I welcome everyones opinion. Thanks

    It's listed as "Apple recommended" because Apple has (and may still) sold systems with Micron memory preinstalled. I've also seen them use Samsung.

    Micron is the same as Crucial. Crucial is the retail arm of Micron.

    Then why does crucial charge 765 dollars for this ram deal. That is a big price difference, it just seems strange.

    The vendor has a decent reputation, they have been around quite a while.
    Micron is one of the big 4 or 5 memory manufacturers.
    But if you are in the USA you can get a better deal on Apple Approved at Data Memory Systems - $558 for 4 Gb (2x2)
