    Yup Kingston is good quality and will be fine.

    Just make sure that you buy a PC2700 DDR (333MHz) SODIMM. PC2100 won't work in the 133GHz 12".

    Last time I checked the price on Kingston 512MB for PB was more expensive than Crucial. I just bought my memory on Monday, got it on Wednesday with their free 2Day FedEx.
    I would say that unless you love Kingston, you should just go with crucial at their website. It was about $102 for me free shipping.
    Hope you get this message before you order.

    Look at the program Do I Need More Memory then. It will give you good feedback at to what you might need in actual RAM. Also look to OWC for RAm, their prices are good. Not sure if they ship overseas.
