    Looks like they've got another offer on. I bought a 2GB kit for my MacBook a couple of weeks back when they had a sale, and that cost £28ish.

    For a moment then I thought that a 2GB stick was £28 and was about to order another one as I bought mine a month ago for £48 but alas it is still the same price for a single 2GB stick. Although the price of the 4GB kit has come down from £115 when I was looking before.

    1 Gig at Crucial - £17.61

    2 Gig
    Crucial: £28.19 (thus + £10.58 upgrade cost)
    Apple: £90.01 (upgrade cost) - a 751% premium

    4 Gig
    Crucial: £84.59 ( thus + £66.98 upgrade cost )
    Apple: £539.99 - a 706% premium

    If it wasn't an utter insult, it would be hilarious. All credit to Crucial for offering a quality product at a sensible price. They are where I get 90% of my memory purchases from. They're DAMN fast on delivery as well.

    Here here

    I could not agree more. Honestly, what is with Apple RAM prices?!

    I got a 4GB pack from Crucial for my Mac Pro recently when they had a 10% off weekend and are great for UK service. They match Apple with their delivery times of less than 24 hours.

    They're just seeing how much they can get by charging more for exactly the same hardware. It's the same strategy they use with their computers.

    Because with crucial you say " I want 4 gig for THIS computer " they guarantee it working on that computer - if there's any trouble, they'll sort it out.
