    CanadaRam, Crucial, Kingston are all trusted resellers and have online configurators that match your machine to the right RAM.

    OWC and datamem are also very good. They also have on-line dbs that will help ensure that you get the correct item.

    i always buy kingston. they make good products. Usually find either 1 or 2 BG ram at 667mhz speed for 40-70$ at best buy or circuit city

    Crucial has competitive prices plus it is guaranteed to work in your MacBook. That's what I have used in the past and it's all been excellent.

    Hi,

    I've bought 4GB from Kingstom, the reference available on their site to the Macbook, and it works perfect

    I can highly recommend crucial. I bought 4GB RAM for my white macbook a few months back....awesome price, and great service.
