    well, im going to buy my macbook soon. and im excited about that.

    i thought about going with apple to add more ram, but it seems really expensive.

    does anyone know where i could get cheaper ram, im here in canada... near toronto.

    or.. are apples ram prices acceptable, and should i just go with them.

    im getting the black one :D and i think im gonna screw the idea of mermon in september next tuesday, because ive been doing that since january. lol.

    does anyone also have some suggesstions for macbook sleeves? i just need a basic one, but i dont want it to get scratched from the zipper, etc.

    thanks for all your help in advance!

    Go to and get some G. Skill ram. If you want to spend a little more....OWC is known as a really good brand as well....I have G.Skill and I haven't had a single problem. Check out the reviews at

    Good luck

    It depends, if you are upgrading to 1GB, I say you do it through the Apple Store. If you are upgrading to 2GB, try Other World Computing: they have some good prices on RAM.

    By the way, its spelled Merom...add that to the tally of how many times people have spelled it wrong...:rolleyes:
