    I am looking to upgrade my recently bought Macbook 2.2 GHZ, 120 GB, 1 GB RAM.

    After researching for a day: I think these are the available options for me >

    >> Apple RAM (for 850 $) (duhh , ruled out .. too expensive)
    >> OWC for 96 $
    >> Crucial for 120$
    >> Samsung for 159$
    >> Kengiston for 110$
    >> Micron for 158$
    >> Techworks for 105$
    >> Patriot for 135 $

    Can somebody help me decide, which one will be best to buy for my macbook? considering that most of them are in the same price range of 100-150$, which brand name is more reliable without any performance or compatibility issues?

    I've used two of the 4GB kits from DMS with no issues whatsoever. I buy the more expensive of the kits, although the cheaper ones would likely be fine, due to the better warranty.

    I prefer DMS simply because I can drive there and pick it up, but they've never supplied me with bad RAM over numerous purchases over many years.
