    Little confused about upgrading my Macbook Pro's ram

    I've read some threads on and seen that OWC is a good place to get mac ram.

    However if someone wouldn't mind confirming the ram that I believe I need that would be very helpful. Also not 100% which brand is best for RAM.

    After going to Apple Symbol / About this Mac / More info I go to the Memory section and find that I have 2 1 gb sticks with the following info

    Size: 1 GB
    Type: DDR2 SDRAM
    Speed: 667 MHz
    Status: OK
    Manufacturer: 0xCE00000000000000
    Part Number: 0x4D342037305432393533455A332D43453620
    Serial Number: 0x7424D4E5

    Here is the Hardware Info

    Model Name: MacBook Pro
    Model Identifier: MacBookPro4,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.6 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 6 MB
    Memory: 2 GB
    Bus Speed: 800 MHz

    From what I've found this is the list of RAM that will/should work

    Which brand is best OWC, Micron, Samsung, or Techworks? Also I notice for the OWC ram there is

    4.0GB Upgrade Kit (2.0GB Modules x 2 Matched)
    4.0GB Upgrade Kit (2.0GB Modules x 2 Matched) CAS 4 High-Performance tuned low-latency

    for $3 more should I go with the CAS 4 High-performance tuned low-latency?

    I'm fairly certain the max ram my MBP can have is 4 gb. Just need confirmation that this is the right RAM, and would like to know which manufacturer is best. I use this MBP for logic 8.

    Really appreciate any feedback!

    You'd be hard pressed to get better than

    There's a tool on tgheir site that detects what RAM your machine needs, and is usually pretty cheap too.

    As above. I've always upgraded all my RAM from crucial and I've never had a problem. Good price, great selection and good product delivery time.
