    As part of an upgrade process (Leopard so I can use Bootcamp so I can play Windows games) I'm looking to upgrade my Macbook Pro from 2GB of Ram to 4GB.

    For cheap computer parts (*Canadian sources) I only know of Tiger Direct, but found this website; http://www.canadaram.com , anyone dealt with them?

    Also looking for a good source for the correct version of XP that I'll need for Boot Camp.

    Sorry haven't ever dealt with them but was wondering if it is any relation with member CanadaRAM (who is very knowledge one RAM matters)

    For bootcamp you need XP with SP2.

    CanadaRAM is very highly recommended here...the member xUKHCx linked to is in fact Trevor from CanadaRAM, and he's been a tremendously helpful member here for many years. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

    I'm in Canada and I recently bought some RAM from OWC (http://macsales.com/) which is a US site.
    The only extra fee I had to pay was 20 bucks for Fed Exing it to Canada. Even counting that 20$ the price was good and the delivery was quite quick (2 days from the order date) so I think it's a viable alternative to buying from a Canadian site.
