    I was advised to not buy the 4gb ram upgrade from apple because I can get it for cheaper.

    I have been searching newegg and I am not sure what is and is not compatible with the MBP.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134661

    would that one work?

    I am trying to buy the "best" one so if anyone has any recommendations I would appreciate it!

    You'd be best off buying RAM that's guaranteed Mac compatible. Both OWC and Crucial are reliable sources for Mac memory.

    Crucial's 4GB kit isn't too shabby price-wise, either.

    I went with 4GB of Patriot Memory from Newegg since it was on sale at the time. I've read that Patriot Memory can be hit or miss, but I've had no problems on my MBP.
