    i live in Bangladesh and i bought a MACBOOK 13-inch: Black 2.4GHz 7 or 8 month ago from abroad.now my mac shutdown very frequently but sometimes i can use it 3 or 4 hours.i reinstall OSX but same problem.is this a RAM problem.if this a RAM problem. as far as i know there are 2 RAM so can i removed faulty ram and run my mac with another RAM.
    in our country there are apple resaler but they are asking $500 for 1Gb RAM with installation.so i don't want to buy from them.can i use another Brands RAM for my mac.

    you can use any brand of Ram as long as it's the ram for your machine. Go to Crucial.com. 4 GB is under $80 (US). It is simple to put it in yourself.
    Could be a faulty Battery. Both would be covered under warranty, but you'd have to send it to them, but call them first
