    So my wife gave it to me last night as an early B-day present.:D I've been using Macs for 3 years and own a First Gen white Macbook. Wow was I blown away. This thing is so much faster and just a work of art. I am so happy with it. I can't wait to play with it more. I wanted to jump it to 4gb or memory ( I run Photoshop and large Raw files). Does anyone know of an online place with a good rebate or something? I know they are online all the time but Dealmac does not have anything listed.

    Thank you,

    is it the unibody model or the last gen ? I have a set of 4G memory that I'm selling that was used on my Penryn model. I used it for about 3 months.

    Check the market place...

    It's the new Unibody Macbook Pro, sorry I should have made that clear. According to the manual it takes PC3-8500 DDR3 1066 200pin ram.

    You sure it's not 204 pin?

    Thanks for the link, you know I thought it was 204 pin too, but the manual say 200pin. I'm looking at it as I type.

    it must be a typo, there is no such thing as a 200PIN DDR3 laptop RAM. And all unibody macbook/pros take 204 PIN RAM.

    It's a typo. It's 204 pin.

    I go the crucial 2x2 set. Works well.

    I have bought the OWC ram mentioned above, and am having no problems whatsoever.
