    So Frys has 2x2GB RAM for $130 after rebate but the only problem is that these are PC2-5400. I know the Macbook uses PC2-5300 so I wanted to be sure if these will/will not work.

    Thanks!

    Thank You Too. Great Deal $20 Less Than Last Weekend

    As long as the RAM is faster than the bus it is put into and it's the same TYPE of compatible stick it will simply run a shade slower than it's capable of running.

    Definitely a good deal, so tempting too but some users said to wait another month or two and it'll drop even more...decisions, decisions...
