    Well i finnaly broke down and ordered my first mac (15in 2.16Ghz MBP) with a 30gig ipod and free printer :) . Shes supposed to be here by thursday, and I wanted to pick up another gig of ram for her. I used to buy my ram from Crucial, but now their prices seem to be much higher than the others. I was wondering where else I can get quality ram thats guaranteed to work?

    Thanks
    -Matt

    Crucial, they seem to be very good. If your an ebayer then get it from ebay for cheap, thou i would only buy from someone who has 50-300 good feedbacks. I have had problems with huge ebay companies with +29,000 feedback since they have to cater to a large number of customers and often suck.

    ramjet

    I always buy from a small company called Ramjet. They are really reliable, and they stand behind their product, no questions asked. I've ordered from them many times, and I've never been disappointed.

    Of course most folks will recommend Crucial, but take a look at ramjet.com if you like. That's where I go.

    I think it really does not matter as long as you buy the ram with the exact specs as speced by apple. I put some in from Macmall (axiom?) and it works fine. Just look up and check the specs.
