    Hi,

    I have Macbook Pro (late 2007) and I would like to upgrade to 4GB of ram. Can I buy 2x2GB of ddr2 ram from any producer (which is much more cheaper) or I have to go for more expensive Apple upgrade kit?

    thanks in advance :apple:

    Get ram from Crucial or go to store that sells Crucial memory (like MicroCenter). The Crucial website has a system scanner that will tell you what memory is required for your MBP and how much you can put in.

    +1 I've always used Crucial memory and never had any problems.
