    Hey all, I just picked up the base Macbook Pro yesterday and it's fantastic! I'm looking to upgrade the 2gb ram to its "official" max of 4. I need all I can get as I will be running VMware a large portion of the time.

    If you could, please take a look at the following links and tell me which is better (and make sure they're right!). I'm open to other suggestions as well (make, capacity, etc)

    Use Crucial. Too many threads on this already.

    i personally like kingston, however is a bit more expensive, if $30 is not a big deal this is my recommendation:

    otherwise go for crucial which is the cheapest I've seen, also I have not idea if the Mushin is good or not.

    BTW on my MBP (NOT UNIBODY, DDR2) I bought first 4GB crucial ram, and it did not feel any faster than 2GB ram, however I later bought another 4GB but kingston (5ms latency) and it felt faster (DDR3 latency is higher so dont even try to get 5ms) so i'd buy kingston...
