    I can get Mushkin RAM for my 2.0 GHz Core Duo MacBook for 114$CAD each 1 GB stick (PC2-5300 5-5-5-15) which is certified for Apple machines according to Mushkin. Total of 228$.

    There is also a dual channel kit of the exact same specifications for 235$CAD but that one isn't certified for Apple hardware.

    In any case, I might just get the two single sticks but would like to know if any of you were using Mushkin memory as well.

    Preemptive reply to some people:

    Yes, I know these prices are much higher than what Newegg has but Newegg doesn't ship to Canada. Sucks to be us.

    Yes, I know there's no such thing as dual channel RAM. Those kits are just certified to be of the same batch. Nothing on the RAM itself makes it dual channel or not.

    edit: Oops, forgot a word in the title.

    Yeah, I did.

    The prices are higher than the ones I mentioned and I don't see which brand CanadaRAM sells so I have to assume it's generic.

    No offense to the guy.

    Check your PM.

    All of our RAM is Mac tested and guaranteed compatible. At different price points we have Crucial, Certified, Kingston, Transcend and Samsung.

    Check out OWC's memory options - they have a 2GB kit for US$183 (works out to C$212). I've bought memory from them before and their service is prompt too. They have a lifetime warranty on their memory with an advance exchange program.

    Mushkin is as good as anything else out there.
