    Greetings all. For all those mac pro users in Japan who don't want to pay the Apple surcharge on ram - can you recommend somewhere to buy good quality 3rd party ram?

    So far I've come across this website:
    http://www.kitcut.co.jp/

    Has anyone used it? What are the alternatives?

    Thanks in advance!

    Believe it or not I actually registered just to apply to this post! Try Omni. I don't have the link but most of the other RAM threads on the Mac Pro board do. I'm from Tokyo and Omni's 4gig x $179 price and good rep had me wondering, so I wrote them yesterday to inquire about international shipping (coincidence!). They ship internationally for $25.

    Edit: which reminds me, are you a translator? If you are, do you happen to know how TRADOS runs on the Mac Pros? I'm just about to upgrade to a Mac Pro and I'll be needing TRADOS for work.

    As far as I know, all the stores that sell Macs carry 3rd parth RAM as well. Haven't you heard of a place called Akihabara?

    Yes, at prices the same as Apple's... Akihabara is in Tokyo, which is not at all near me:rolleyes:

    No, I'm not a translator... Sorry. The translators I know use windows...

    4 gigs for $219 plus $25 shipping!

    Thanks for the info about Omni. Just ordered 4 gigs at a very low price... Should be here in 2 - 4 days:D
