    Hi guys,
    I'm looking to replace my old '06 imac with a new 13" mbp. I'm getting the low end model (can't justify the extra $300aud for the next model), and want a ram upgrade. Can I use just a normal kingston ddr3 sodimm? i can save a boatload of money if i don't need specific mac memory.
    Thanks in advance.

    yup it just has to be the right type. it usually costs about $60 versus apple's $100.

    sweet. now i only have to pay $110 instead of some ungodly amount of money for only 4gb of memory
