    i bought mine from crucial. their site is pretty simple. punch in your computer info and it tells you exactly what ram to get.

    I bought RAM from Crucial and it worked well. Check out http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/ for instructions. It's an easy upgrade and if you feel comfortable just DIY and save the money.

    BTW, congrats on the new MacBook :)

    i did look at the guide, but wanted to get feedback from actual people not some guide written by one person, i also searched and didnt see anything, and this is a forum, so i wanted to use it to get feedback, you know, like what it is for, and thanks to all the others who actually gave real replies

    Crucial has good memory, but I've always found them a bit "pricey".

    I buy all of my RAM from OWC (some of the best RAM prices around) and never had a problem.
