    Hi there,

    I am looking to upgrade my memory but all I see on websites is like Kingston Apple money being like doubled price. Do I really need to buy something like this or kingston is just doing marketing?

    My model is a Peryn 2008 (early), the model before the unibody. It has ddr2-667mhz and L5....

    COuld you please help me find the cheapest deal from Canada?

    Thank you

    100 dollars on a 3 year old macbook pro with white patches on screen, is it worth it?

    It depends if you can afford it. If it still works while plugged into an external monitor, and you use it that way I would say so.

    please note there is no such thing as "mac ram" its just labtop ram with a certain bus speed

    tiger direct is a massive canadian computer parts supplier and they have some pretty great pricing

    all you need is DDR 2 with a bus of 667 and the quantity you want

    yes they do have a mac ram section ignore it >_< its all the same but with 2 different prices =D

    White patches? You may want to replace the LCD before you upgrade the RAM.
