    Hey y'all...

    I have a 1.83 Macbook Pro and only 512 RAM. I want to buy a gig, but have never upgraded RAM and don't know what to look for or how to do it.

    If you could help me, I would appreciate it!

    All best,

    Corey

    I would go to this site:

    http://dealram.com/

    They have really good prices on RAM.

    My name is Corey, too, by the way :)

    It is the correct general spec but there is no guarantee one way or another whether it is Mac compatible. You'll also notice that Frys/Outpost makes you write to them by snail mail to find out the warranty on this part :eek:

    You are better off ordering from a reputable dealer who tests and guarantees compatibility with your specific model Mac, offers a lifetime warranty and a no-cost return (no restocking charge) if it doesn't work.

    If you are in the USA, Data Memory Systems has the 1 Gb MacBook Pro guaranteed RAM for $113, so why even consider NewBestOutpostTigerEggFryBuy.com?

    i found a site that had the warranty and contact information for Patriot. i could probably just go by that warranty info right? or do you think fry's carries their own warranty on it? i don't really mind buying online from them because i go to their physical store all the time.

    EDIT: perhaps this needs its own thread (?), even if it's about MBP ram.

    You can try it if you don;t mind doing your own testing and taking / sending it back at your expense if it doesn't work. The manufacturer does not guarantee compatibility with your machine, only guarantees against defects in manufacture.
