    Apple does not manufacture RAM and charges more than you would pay with other reputable RAM providers, such as Crucial.

    I'm pretty sure I have that very kit in my white MacBook, it works wonderfully.

    And when comparing Apple's prices, compare with HP and Lenovo. Just saying...

    In my humble opinion, Crucial makes very good products. I've got Crucial memory in my home lab box and a Crucial SSD in my MBP. The lab box has been running, more or less, for 4+ years with no hiccups.

    Crucial is part of Micron, which is a reputable RAM manufacturer. I'd recommend them.

    Yes, if you have two working hands and a screwdriver you can DIY the RAM.
