    Yes, that's the right kind. I'd be wary of buying computer parts from Hong Kong :eek:

    A Data is a Taiwanese company. I personally would buy it over any Chinese company because usually Taiwan has much better quality control. The person has great feedback as well so I dont find it very risky.

    I am a bit worried on compatibility. Technically it should work because the macs are on the x86 architecture now with the Intel chips. However I would rather be on the safe side because it is still a mac. Which is why I still went ahead and bought it from DataMem because they insured compatibility.

    You understand, though, that you are buying from flashman852 in Hong Kong, not A-Data?

    And although there is no HK GST or tax, your country may impose taxes and/or duties on import?

    And that you are responsible for all freight and insurance for any warranty returns?

    There is another thread here about this RAM -- IIRC two people have reported problems with the RAM, but there aren't enough responses to show a definite trend.

    well, i ordered from flashman852... the ram never arrived... i am still trying to get my money back...

    in the meantime, here in germany there is a company called MDT that manufactures in-land, and more important sells for quite the same money!


    i have 2x 1GB in my mackbook right now. no problems whatsoever...

    I have ordered from flashman853 and everything was great.
    Shipping was fast and memory worked great, no problems whatsoever.
    This was a memory card for a digital camera, though.

    No RAM can be cheaper than the RAM Apple puts into the MB:rolleyes: Some weird brand I've never heard of before. Hynix or something like that. What happened to the days when Apple used Samsung RAM in the PB's etc?:rolleyes:

    Buzzzz! Wrong.

    Or did you mean the RAM that automatically follows when buying?

    Testicles. That is all.
    See, this is why pc users laugh at mac users. They say things like, "It doesn't have a made for mac sticker; so it won't work!" Ram is ram. Like a usb HD, if you get the right ram; it will work. I wouldn't get it from ebay becasue it's not insured; though. If you get a Gig stick from newegg, it's insured for life usually, so it DOES have guranteed compatability (or your money back); PLUS, it's half the price.

    Also, that's two seperate 512 sticks, and i think it comes with one, so one wouldn't go to use, leaving u with 1 gig instead of 1.5.
