    Just installed 8GB of ram into my macbook pro 13" and i have to say i notice a big difference with Windows 7 x64 through bootcamp.

    Run's much much smoother. So thats a big +.

    Also kudos to OWC (Other World Computing) for getting my order to Ireland from America within 3 days, great service, recommended to anyone.

    cool, I too am trying to max out the ram in my recently purchased 15" 2.4 GHz i5. Currently the ram is 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3

    I do see many options from OWC ( http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/memory/Apple_MacBook_MacBook_Pro/Upgrade/DDR3 ) and I'm leaning towards the NuRAM for $120. But I'm trying to weight against some of the other deals I'm seeing online too like:

    Yep, OWC are very good. Will be buying 8GB RAM and some USB->DVI converters from them soon.
