    Just got the MB 2.4 Ghz.
    I have a question though.
    As I read macrumors, I always heard to not buy ram from apple.

    Now, where should I buy it from? I would like to buy a 4Gb (2x2) kit of DDR3 1066 Mhz SDRAM. Any suggestions of preference as far as quick shipments and great prices? Thank You!:)

    eBay is always a good place. There are many reliable stores that specialise in memory and offer great prices. I've always bought memory from eBay.

    It was a good decision not to buy from Apple. Their prices for memory upgrades are silly.

    I got my RAM for my MacBook from crucial.com. Great, easy, fast and reliable. Good experience and I recommend you buy from them - great price as well.

    That place has it for $139 and Apple has 4GB for $134 with the student discount... is there any real reason not to go with Apple?

    It delays your order.

    ....and you get to keep the originals instead of an upgrade without keeping the old.

    I would definitely get it from Apple at those prices. Yeah you don't get the originals, but if anything goes wrong its all covered under Apple Care. The best warranty on the planet.
