    I am looking at buying an extra 1GB bar of RAM for my MBP. Crucial UK don't have any in stock and every time I phone up it is "it will be in stock in 5 days". It's been like that for 15 days.

    I have found Kingston memory and it is only £67 (no VAT because I'm in Jersey). I was wondering if anyone had used Kingston and Crucial and could compare. Any opinion would be welcome.

    PS I've always found crucial to be excellent and am wondering if I should go with that.

    I have always used Kingston RAM and it is faultless in fact I have a 512mb stick in my iBook, come to think of it the times I have used crucial I have not been very happy as there RAM seems to be problematic...

    I don't know if Kingston offer the same guarantees to end users, but they used to be wonderful to work with in corporate environments. They would cover in-warranty system repairs in the event that the OEM decided to get funny about third-party memory, and free replacement of any failed RAM. I don't remember ever really needing to call Kingston on those assurances, though.
