    Posted this previously but I think it got buried in a thread. So here goes again.

    Just checking, but in buying memory for the macbook pro 2.4GHz it should be:
    • ddr2 667 pc2-5300 or pc2-5400. As far as I can tell it doesn't seem to matter
    • so-dimm 200 pin module
    • no ECC, Cas Latency (CL) is 5
    • I'm guessing it should not have a heat shield as that would make fit a problem

    Anything else I should know? Prices vary, but at newegg for a 2Gb that module is running a little over $100. Depends on the vendor. OCZ is $122, Patriot $116, Corsair $130.

    Also, anyone want to opine how much difference 2Gb vs 4Gb makes for Parallels running Vista? I tuned Vista to not run Superfetch, Search or Index which makes it just usable, but has anyone actually experienced the difference between 2Gb and 4Gb? Just curious. Thanks.
