Here's a quote from another forum:
"I have sent them back laptops for repair that were sold from the Apple store or bought online from the Apple store and they have pulled the extra memory and said it was third party and bad, even though it was installed at the [Apple] factory in China."
Nice rant. Also, Apple has lowered memory prices from time to time and sometimes the price difference is as little as $10 to $20 for getting the memory from Apple. That little bit extra is well worth it. For exam[ple, upgrading the MacMini to 512MB makes sense to get the upgrade from Apple, but going to 1GB the cost difference becomes noticeable.hcuar said:...
Not to go a little over the top, however MR people tend chastise people into purchasing RAM from someone other than Apple. I don't mind people pointing out that 3rd party memory may be cheaper, as long as they mention that problems may arise from using it.
i bought my 1gb powerbook-dimm at the apple store for $500. didn't work, got it replaced same day with a working one.hcuar said:Expensive as in RAM from Apple? Sure... it works... Everytime.
As in a different expensive RAM company such as Crucial? Maybe, it usually works.
SAME DAY!!!! That's the guarantee I'm talking about. If you purchased the RAM from Cruical it would have taken another week to get your replacement memory (maybe even more) because they don't cross ship replacements.andiwm2003 said:i bought my 1gb powerbook-dimm at the apple store for $500. didn't work, got it replaced same day with a working one.
so no, there is no guaranteed ram. even if it's from apple.
