    HELP! I want to upgrade the RAM in my White Macbook MB881LL /A with NVIDIA and not pay the $200 idiot charge from the apple site. Newegg has a great deal on corsair ($35 for 4 gigs after rebate) but a couple reviews say it's not compatible. What gives?

    Somewhat comical you're calling people that don't feel comfortable changing their own RAM idiots and then posting about confusion on types of RAM.

    OP is referring to the cost that apple charges for their ram upgrade.
    and I agree, only idiots pay that much.

    F'reals, especially seeing how EVERY THREAD on this topic points people to www.crucial.com and their on-site tool which tells you EXACTLY what RAM you need.

    the product description on newegg says that the RAM is compatible with "all macbooks" however, a couple reviewers say it wasn't compatible with the new white macbook.

    Please, has anyone had any luck with 3rd party RAM. cheaper than the overpriced apple store RAM.
