    I have been wanting to upgrade the memory in my Penryn Macbook to 4GB. Yesterday I wandered into Radio Shack and noticed they had 2GB memory sticks on sale for $49.99 each.

    Don't know about the quality but since the price was good I went ahead and purchased two of them. They seem to work OK although I haven't run them through a complete memtest yet.

    Has anyone heard anything about this memory? Here is the link to the sale:

    You would have gotten a better deal here.

    What's with the RAM paranoia? If it works then it works. Since it's a Penryn Macbook the major issue is going to be sticking with DDR2-667.

    That's actually a different brand.

    I plan on doing HD video editing which is the main reason for the upgrade. I will also be transferring old vinyl records to CD.

    It's still cheaper. :D

    I've had mine for almost 7 months now.

    Cool! True, I looked around a bit and saw some cheaper upgrades but there is also the instant gratification factor. :) I guess I was just wondering if anyone has had a bad experience with Centon RAM.

    I would just buy from Crucial, they have a 2GB stick for $51-53 but it's Crucial brand and definitely will work well with your MacBook...
