    Don't use the Corsair Value Ram! I tried two different modules, and both caused havoc with my Macbook Pro. I think it actually needs to say "PC2 5300". I ended up going to Micro Center and buying Lifetime Memory, and it works perfectly.

    Kingston KTA-MB667/1G - yes, compatible, in constrained supply
    Kingston KVR-xxxxx ValueRAM - unknown, prior ValueRAM models have been incompatible with various Macs. Kingston does not guarantee compatibility.
    TwinMOS - unknown.
    Corsair ValueSelect - reported as incompatible

    Your best bet is to buy from a reputable seller who guarantees compatibility with your Mac.

    They guarantee it will but a bit $$$ Try this link and see if they ship to you (worth a shot) as OWC has good prices and will guarantee the ram as well.

    it costs around 230USD here in norway, its the only type of memory that is garantued to work. i cant order from international stores, the price difference dissapears and ends up with this = 25% when getting it to norway, shipping fees that are almost the same as the product itself + shipping time.

    so the crucial ram i mentioned is garantued to work ?
