Hi all,

A little help please. I came across this while searching for RAM for my new MacBook Pro. I want 4GB but I don't want to pay more than $200 total if possible.

Could someone tell me whether this

or this

or this

would work with my mac. I noticed that the OCZ is a "PC5400" whatever that means, and Apple's own memory upgrade for this computer is a "PC5300"

If neither works, can someone tell if and where I can find 4GB for under $200. I've read a previous post where someone linked a RAM search website for daily deals, but my search through the forum did not find it.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks!

So what is the difference between PC-5300 and PC-5400?

So how do you know that the RAM is compatible?

Great! Just didn't want to spend the money for nothing. Didn't mean to sound rude, but I realize when I read it, it may have sounded that way.

Thanks

When I bought my SR MBP 2.4 I upgraded my memory to 4GB with these:

They work with no problem, and the price is right.

I used to be a big supporter of OCZ. I build a lot of PC systems for my customers, and use to use OCZ Memory for the higher spec builds. The recent batches I have received were duds, incompatible with ASUS motherboards, and got a lot of memory returns/exchanges because of the memory. OCZ has lifetime warranty, and they had no problem RMA the bad stuff, but it was almost a failure rate of 30%.
