    When did you buy your macbook? The original ones took a maximum of 2GB, the later ones took a max of 3GB, and the newer ones take a max of 4GB.

    I bought it in May. I know it does support 4GB of RAM because it was an option on there webpage well before I purchased my MacBook.

    2G is more then enough for most people, 4G is overkill :)

    that is a very good deal. i looked at details and saw cl was 5 so means 5-5-5-15. the ram i am going to get is skill and its the same price for 4-4-4-12 and it would be a little faster. here is the link.:D:apple:

    If you look closely at his page, its 40 after the rebate. I didnt think it was an amazing deal until i looked below and saw the 40

    I bought that off of Newegg last week. Took all of 3 days to show up. 4GB of RAM is perfect when I am running my Vista VM and other apps on the Mac OS, but yes, 4GB of RAM can be overkill as at idle I have over 3GB Free.

    $40 and Crucial ram to boot, AND free shipping. I can't imagine a better deal.

    How does one go about checking how much memory their Macbook can take? Or do you just go by the date of purchase?

    I bought it a few days ago for my wife's Macbook(she doesn't really need it, but for $40 I couldn't pass it up). I wish they had this price when I bought mine a few months ago. One of the best deals on the internet IMO.

    Check Warranty

    Sounds like a good deal, but when I tried to check out their warranty it gave no answer, said contact Frye ??? I buy memory from OWC ( macsales.com).
    They specialize in Apple supplies. They also feature a lifetime warranty on all their memory and should it fail, you call and they ship out replacement parts immediately. You ship the defective parts back when you replace them with the new. 4GB will run you $94, but warranty may be an issue for you as it is for me.

    Crucial RAM comes with a lifetime warranty also. Crucial also has a lot of Apple users using their RAM.

    Fry's is a very legit and respected online store(they also have retail stores).

    Just because you opted for 2gb, then so be it. The fact that 4gb is $40, might be overkill NOW, but 6 months down the line who knows, and at that price it is a NO-BRAINER.

    I guess the question now is: Can anyone find it under 39.99??

    I don't know if they have that now. Maybe during black friday, but that's pretty doubtful.

    Terrific deal!

    Unfortunately I don't have the extra cash right now to max out the RAM.
