    CanadaRAM has guaranteed generic RAM for the MacBook for CD$140 or CD$269 for 2 x 1 GB sticks. They are a terrific vendor...Trevor from CanadaRAM has been one of the most helpful members on these forums, though he's currently on hiatus.

    Thanks! Cheaper than what I was looking at, I know it will work for sure and thanks for the fast reply as well. :)

    Any reason not to use Crucial (who ship to Canada as well and are offering the same price)?

    Because Crucial employs unsavory business practices that I refuse to support. For an eye-opening education, see this thread...

    I got 2GB for US$170 included S/H from Powerlinememory.com so far so good, keep in mind that my MB is running almost 24x7 in clamshell mode.:cool:

    I'm fairly new to buying ram...is their any performance difference between buying generic versus the name brands? I'd think not but better check! :) I don't want to gimp a brand new macbook (talk about a tragedy!)

    Also check NCIX.com, CSC, or Carbon Computing (Toronto) in Canada. ;)

    Very interesting... I clicked through to OWC & DMS from the other thread and their prices are way better, anyone have any experience ordering from them to Canada?

    $10,000 seems a little high for MacBook RAM, even 2GBs.

    CanadaRAM is the best in my experience.

    They are prompt, reasonably priced and the guy who runs it is a well-liked member of MR.
