    Hello there,

    I am wanting to buy memory for my MacBook. I live in the UK and have always used Crucial in the past - I highly recommend them.
    My MacBook came with 1GB of ram, in the form of 2 x 512MB.

    Here are the prices for RAM for my system:

    4GB (2x2GB) is £58.27
    2GB (2x1GB) is £32.89
    2GB (1x2GB) is £29.13*

    * If I get this it means I would have 2.5GB of ram in my system, however it won't be in pairs. Would you recommend I get 2x1GB and have 2GB of ram, or get the single 2GB module and have 2.5GB but not in pairs?

    The 4GB is tempting... considering it was £72.74.

    What would you get? I imagine there isn't a bit jump from 2GB to 4GB performance wise unless you're running photoshop and stuff? (which I'm not).

    Oh decisions!

    Using both slots with the same size memory is better. You are to get a 6-8% increase in productivity I think. Click me
