    I'm going to buy a new MacBook, and as a far as I know, buying more RAM from Apple is not a good alternative... What are the best places to buy RAM online for the MacBook??

    I swear by Crucial (which is better then swearing at it), but I went with OWC on my MBP and it's just as good.

    Plus, do you need more RAM? For average usage, 2GB is more than sufficient. Are you planning to use memory intensive programs?

    I usually use many (and many!) applications at the same time. I've been a mac user for more than 20 years (Apple Plus, LCII, Performa 3600CD, Powerbook 3400c, iBook G3, iMac G4, iMac Core Duo, 2 MacBooks) and I know that RAM DOES make a difference. By the way, all my Macs are still running without problems (except the iMac Core Duo that have GPU problems), even the Apple Plus! It's like a little nice mac museum.
