    At £220 that 8Gb kit is as good and cheap as your gonna get. What have you got in at the moment? is it 1 or 2 banks filled? if you only got one 4GB chip then you can obviously half that price

    By the time you've paid import duties and tax, there's very little advantage to buying from MacSales. It's also a lot more hassle dealing with returns and warranty issues if your supplier is based in the US and you are in Europe.

    Well the laptop is brand new from Apple with the standard 4Gb would this be 1 or 2 sticks from stock?

    Yes i would prefer to pay more to buy from a UK stockest for returned etc and avoid import costs etc.

    Do you have PC3 8500 or DDR3 1333 PC3 10666? I bought the 10666 by accident and will be buying PC38500 to replace. My 13" doesn't accept the 10666.
    I have the 8GB of G-Skill RAM in the box still and I'm located near Peterborough in the East. It'll be cheap to overnight it anywhere in the UK.

    PM me if interested.

    I've just looked at the price at macsales.com

    I live in Denmark and with import taxes it becomes more expensive than my local dealer.

    Are there really no EU online stores that sells memory?

    Ebuyer sells an 8GB Kit, Speed is more than what the MBP can utilize but it may still be compatible, see thread below (last 3 posts)

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1004202

    Not sure if Ebuyer are actually UK based but they do deliver next day for £9.99 I have bought quite a lot of things from them, normally get the free delivery unless spending a lot of money.

    You only have 50 Mins to order if you want it tomorrow though!

    What I have is 8GB of G-Skill DDR3-1333 PC3 10666. Sounds like you are running what my 13" has, so no, it won't help for what you are looking for. Sorry, I thought the i7 ran the faster memory chips.

    Do you not trust Crucial, or just the other one? I've bought my last 3 lots of memory from Crucial, and will probably continue to do so. They seem to be as cheap as anyone, and they have next day delivery as an option.
