    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 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?

    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.
