    I just spent 100 dollars on a 4 GB memory upgrade for my fairly new mbp.
    4GB kit (2GBx2), 200-pin SODIMM, DDR2 PC2-5300 memory module
    CT687602 US $103.99



    Module Size: 4GB kit (2GBx2)
    Package: 200-pin SODIMM
    Feature: DDR2 PC2-5300
    Specs: DDR2 PC2-5300 • CL=5 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-667 • 1.8V • 256Meg x 64 •

    was it money well spent? is crucial reliable? will it be hard to install? I have the 15.4 inch 2.4 ghz macbook pro. H

    No you did good. Crucial RAM has been flawless for me. Installing is pretty easy if you follow instructions... just remember to ground yourself before installing!

    You'd be hard pressed to find better. Add in the lifetime warranty, and you're gold. I've been buying their memory for years and have yet to have a single stick fail.

    crucial is good. Though i have seen some DOA modules.

    some think its a little overpriced. I personally have G.Skill and its good as far as i can tell.

    Crucial is good stuff, except I haven't used their RAM in few years.

    Crucial makes so awesome RAM, I use their stuff in all my Macs. And, they always have some sort of rebate going, save some cash. I got 2 2GB sticks for $30 after rebate. Good stuff!

    I've used Crucial from my PC days and now on my Macs. They might not be the cheapest, but the memory has always been the correct modules for the computer specified.

    Many ways. First go to the Apple (top left corner) and choose About This Back. Look for 4GB. To double check, right below that 4GB it says More Info...

    Select the More Info... and go down to the memory drop down and see if the 4GB is there.
