    Look here. DMS has been doing business for over 19 years and they won't steer you wrong. (Good prices too :D)

    What ncook said.

    Your best bet is NOT to try and figure out all the RAM specs for yourself, but to purchase from a reputable company that tests and guarantees compatibility with your model Mac, offers a lifetime warranty, and a no-cost return if it doesn't work.

    There are many more specifications than the basic description of DDR2-667 MHz 200 pin SODIMM. You can't determine compatibility solely by looking at the published specs.

    Alright thanks! I think I'm going to just go ahead and buy some Ram from DMS. Does 119$ for 1GB 200 Pin DDR2-667 PC2-5300 128x64 CL5 1.8V SODIMM sound good? Alsot hey have 1GB EconoRAM 200 Pin DDR2-667 PC2-5300 128x64 CL5 1.8V SODIMM (1 Year Warranty) for $92.00. What one is the best Ram?

    They are both good RAM and compatible -- you trade away the lifetime warranty for the lower price -- your decision.

    I just ordered a new MBP today, 2.16 GHz, with only 1 GB of RAM... Apple's price for a second GB is $300, while from Crucial it's "only" $201 or so. Saved $100 right there.

    I've ordered from Crucial before and their web site is really well-designed... easy to select your machine and see what your RAM options are, and they shipped my RAM out within an hour of me ordering it... I'll have it even before my MBP arrives.

    Good thread. I just ordered a stick too.

    Way to make me max out the RAM! Had I not seen this thread, I would be fine with the RAM I already have.

    :p

    From what I see you can't void the warrenty by putting in ram.
