    So where have you guys found good deals on the 2x2Gb RAM? I'm *this close* to getting a blackbook and I want to upgrade right away. Thanks for the help!

    Awesome -thanks guys but one question: Could I just buy 2 of the 2Gb sticks, it's cheaper that way for some reason. There's some listed as $134.99 for the 4Gb (2x2) or one single 2Gb stick for $58.99 x 2 = $117.98 and there's a free 1Gb USB key included. Not half bad...

    Why not wait? The prices have been steadily going down this month. Who knows what a few weeks may bring.

    Yes, that was the point of my post above. Apple doesn't use some 'special' RAM... That is for the NEW Santa Rosa MBP's, although the older ones it should be fine too even though IIRC it is 533Mhz.

    How come some RAM Brands cost extra because its "Mac Compatible" RAM?

    Even though its the same specs.

    People would save much more money if they just bought the regular one right?

    Yes, but can you confirm that all 667 MHz SDRAM will work with all Intel iMacs and MacBooks, regardless of whether it is listed as "Mac compatible"?

    I ordered 2X2GB Kingston sticks from Buy.com the other day. I was planning on waiting until next (Black) Friday, but I just couldn't pass up 4GB for $96, including shipping. Order should arrive next week, and, although these should definitely work, I will report back for anyone still concerned. Looking forward to quadrupling my RAM!

    Of course not. "All" would encompass brands that are out of spec., and brands that have heatspreaders on them (bad for MacBooks and iMacs).

    $700???

    Why does Apple charge $700 to upgrade a Macbook Pro from 2GB to 4GB? I'm looking in the back of Laptop Magazine, and even Mac Authorized dealers do it for $300. Isn't that kinda silly?

    going from 2 to 4 is there a big difference? I mean is it pretty noticeable performance boost?
