    I get the memory from [best and safest place besides Apple]... since I thought Apple might cost more.. not sure if it is true. Newegg and if possible... what is the part number I need to get. DDR2 1333?

    OWC or crucial.com are both safe choices. I go with whichever is least expensive at the time of purchase. With Newegg you take the chance of ordering the wrong ones.

    When I add 8GB memory in Apple store it shows as 2x4GB. Does that mean that it is 2GB into the 4 slots?? sorry for the newbie questions. Just want to be sure. I think I should just get the 2x2GB then,...... and get the 4gb x2 from Newegg or OWC... cheaper that way. I thought you had to get memory of all the same size and speed in order to achieve DDR rate [within Windows knowledge].... isn't it the same in Mac arena?

    Nope it means its 2 (quantity) x 4GB (memory). The number with the GB next to it denotes the size of each stick.
