    hello,
    I have a macbook pro 2.33 GHz Intel core 2 Duo with
    2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM (2 x 1GB chips)
    I'm looking at buying a 2 gig chip (preferably in the u.k)

    I came accross this at

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=632576

    2GB Corsair Value Select, DDR2 PC2-5400 (667), 240 Pin, Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 5

    for like £46.99.

    cross referencing with the apple store their chip is a
    Memory Module 2GB 667MHz DDR2 (PC2-5300) - 1x2GB SO-DIMM

    difference being 5300 & 5400

    is this the wrong chip? and if so can I get the right one (cheap) and does my mbp allow this?

    thanks for any help

    PC2-5300 and PC2-5400 are the same RAM, some manufacturer's just specifiy the memory speeds a little bit different. BUT

    The memory that you linked to is for DESKTOP memory, not notebook memory so it won't work

    Yes it's the wrong chip.

    If you get the right one it should work.

    Crucial UK = 2GB @ £57.56

    Remember, you need a 200 pin SODIMM forMBPs. The 240s go in desktops like Mac Pro
