    Hi,

    I've decided to buy some more RAM for my MBP. I have the 2.4ghz, late 2007 model which came with 2GB. I thought it would suffice, but lately I've been doing a lot of development work on this system and I have some memory hungry applications running, not to mention it seems the RAM prices are much cheaper now.

    I live in France at the moment and there's an online store here selling a G. Skill set and a Kingston set for about 60 euros, the Kingston is about 4 euros extra so the price is not an issue here. They're both 2x2gb, 667mhz. I'm slightly inclined to go for the Kingston one since on the web site it's marked specifically as compatible with Apple, but I've read a lot of good reviews about G.Skill RAM. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    Thanks

    the models are:

    Both are good brands. I'd go with which ever one is cheaper. There's no such thing as being specifically Apple compatible, all RAM is RAM.

    I have bought Gskill for the last 5 machines i needed RAM on.

    Their CustService is excellent when Ive used it. And they are usually cheaper than most other prices. (on newegg)
