    I am preparing to purchase a 15" macbook pro. I believe the memory is DDR2 667 (PC2 5300).

    With that being said I understand that memory can be purchased much cheaper elsewhere.

    Does the 2GB option come with 2x1gb sticks of memory, or 1x2gb stick? I know that it's important to match memory, but I am still curious.

    Thanks so much.

    Two 1GB sticks, based on me purchasing a MBP in June with the 2GB option and the fact that it says that when you go to purchase one.

    It's not actually particularly important to match memory, the gains on the MacBook Pro are minimal (6%-8% maybe)

    The Patriots at $169? not so much. DMS is better at $130 a pair or $150 a pair, they guarantee compatibility, and pay shipping if there are any DOAs

    6-8% isn't too bad, but I think for the 69$ price difference, I'll just purchased the 2x2gb matched pair and sell the factory memory on eBay.

    It's sure a lot cheaper than a 700$ upgrade? How do they justify that?
