    I'm guessing it doesn't really matter which you get right? I"m going to upgrade to 8GB or Ram and can get kingston from their site for 52 bucks and from crucial's website for 60. Both seem like solid deals.

    Any experience with either is appreciated.

    They're both solid brands. Check the reviews for Mac users' experiences to make sure they're compatible since Macs tend to be picky.

    I've used both brands and have had no issues with either.

    I'm currently running 4GB of Crucial in my MBP.

    Newegg has some great deals running right now

    Crosair 1333 8gb 39.95

    Crosair 1066 8gb 34.99

    Those are the chepest 1s right now but they have pretty much every brand for under 8gb 50$ right now. You cant go wrong with any name brand like kingston, crucial, gskill, crosair, mushikin, patriot. Just dont spend twice as much on OWC "mac certified" ram because its a waste of around 40 more$. Even the mac certified ram on newegg is cheaper then OWC

    Crosair Mac Certified Ram - 54.00

    I actually looked at the apple store and it was $400 for 8 GB of ram!

    No wonder they are so profitable :) :apple:
