    The website macserive.com has some interesting products (along with replacement parts for MBPs) what is interesting to me is their price for ram $440 w(for 4 gigs) which is a lot less than Apple's price, and also the fact that they offer a replacement 200 gig 7200 RPM hardrive (thats a lot of hardrive space, $395). If I bought both of these from Macservice that would be only slightly more than just the price of the 4 gigs of RAM from apple...the question is, do they offer quality parts and has anyone had experience with them before?

    Thanks

    $440 for 4GB ram for a Macbook Pro is a terrible deal. Its been as low as $150 for 4GB and usually hovers around $180 for 4GB (2x2GB) from reputable vendors on name brand RAM.
