If I order RAM from OWC for my MBP, will I void the warranty by installing it?
Only if you break something while doing it. It's not that hard to install!
Nope. It's a user-servicable component of the laptop. Just make sure you discharge yourself properly and read the following instructions:
dear god I hope not. They are both user accessible.
Thanks guys, just watched the video at OWC....looks easy as pie!
Is OWC good RAM? I'm confused... to upgrade at apple is really expensive, where as at OWC for the same kind of ram is more in line to what I would expect to pay for RAM. Are they using some kind of special ram (I heard the Mac Pro Ram has special heat sinks)
How many RAM slots are in the MBP? Am I switching out chips to get the max 4GB?
They have great videos. Glad you watched them and learned. It's not that hard or something to be afraid to do.
Two slots in the MBP for 2 x 2 GB.
OWC is a great Mac seller and they even have a trade in program.
So I would be needing 2 x 2GB modules then I would return the 2 X 1GB modules for the rebate... that sounds nice.
OWC53IM2DDR4GBK 4.0GB (2GB+2GB Kit) PC2-5300 DDR2 667MHz SO-DIMM 200 Pin Memory Upgrade Kit
is this right??? i thought the macbook pro had pc2-5200 DDR2, not 5300.
The MacBook Pro has a 667 MHz (PC5300) memory controller. You picked the right memory.
ohhh yeah... bought'd
my brand new 2.2ghz macbook pro is going to love me.
doesnt it only support up to 3GB of ram though?
The new mbp supports the full 4gb. Unlike my now old C2D..
Self upgrading RAM!?!
Does it have little robotic arms to pull itself out of the socket, or something?
Before that I supposes it takes control of your computer to order the replacement RAM and waits for it to arrive.
I'd guess it would void your warranty if it became self aware, then welded the access panel shut to prevent you from removing it. It's possible some other components of your computer could become damaged in the ensuing fight for control of the planet, which I doubt Apple would replace for free.
KEEP IN MIND if you computer gets messed up, and they find its the ram's fault or that the ram is going bad; you will get charged for it. I would keep your old ram instead of selling it just for that reason.
That was what I was thinking.
Plus its a quick way to see if the issue is the ram (plug the old stuff back it, if it works - faulty ram, get it replaced instead of sending it off to apple).
you can't trade in ram without buying new sticks first... i just checked, and it requires an order number first. possibly just for that reason, and probably to keep people from just selling them ram without buying any.
