    I think I am about to get my first Mac (a 2.2GHz black Macbook) and I'm definitely going to want to upgrade to 4GB of RAM. Here are a few sites I found. I need to know: does the brand matter?? Should I just get the cheapest one or is the more expensive brand better?

    As long as the RAM is 100% to the correct specifications, the brand doesn't matter as much as the reliability and the policies of the seller.
