    OWC is a well known online shop for mac gear - You should have no troubles buying there... Check newegg, crucial, datamem and fastmac too, but just make sure you read the specs on your system before committing to new hardware.

    There's probably a local shop that carries brand-name memory though, right? I can't speak for prices, but if you find brand-name hardware with a warranty matching the specs of your machine (macbook, no?) you should be just fine. I can suggest Mushkin, Kingston, Crucial, as good brands. There are a few others too... For hard drives, I have an affinity towards Seagate, but there are those who prefer Maxtor, Western Digital, Samsung, or Toshiba.

    For the Macbook C2D, I would suggest this memory and this hard drive.

    *Note, I'm not listing the fastest, or most performance parts - just something I think is a balance of reliable and inexpensive.
