    Where do you think the best place to buy memory in the Uk for a macbook is? Preferably online and not eBay?

    You can really get great prices off eBay sellers from the US.

    Wow, the OP specifically says "UK" and "not eBay" and you go ahead and suggest eBay US.

    Hmm.. well I did have a couple positive experiences getting 4gb of rams for my Mini and the upcoming MB(P) off eBay, and especially at this time of high memory prices it is actually quite worth a shot too. Clearly Tclare's intention is to save money, else he would have purchased it from an Applecentre.

    Besides pay with Paypal and there is zero risk! ;)

    It is like a button that says "DO NOT PUSH." You have to push it and see what is does.

    I think you'll be best off with somewhere like:

    http://www.crucial.com/uk

    Use the memory selector at the top of the page to specify your precise model of Mac. Very fast delivery, ultra-reliable. Use them for work and home. :)

    It depends on the seller's policies.

    There are countless threads like this that you could have used the search function for and i cant be bothered to find them for you.
    here you can get a 1GB stick for £64 inc VAT which is the best price that i have found. It is the Corsair Value RAM and lots of people on here have it and say that it is pretty good.

    I have looked on the website and cannot find that RAM anywhere! :p Could someone direct me. I am sorry for my laziness!

    EDIT: Unless you mean this RAM http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=353418

    You don't see the link that says "Memory" on the front page?

    Well here... to make it even easier, I've sorted to the kind the MacBook takes (MacBook can take 533 MHz or 667 MHz, preferably 667 MHz).
