    This maybe a long shot, but i wonder if anyone from around the orlando area can help me with a question.

    I'm british and going to disney for a holiday the first 2 weeks of feb. I am looking to buy a macbook pro before this. I know that ram is so much cheaper in america, but anyone from around that area, know of a good place to get some. Looking for more like something in florida mall.

    Any help would be much apppreaciated.

    I'm not in the Florida Mall area, but I work at a store called Connecting Point in Winter Park (just north of Orlando proper off of I-4). We've got pretty good prices on RAM, not matching online prices, but those aren't really a good option it sounds like. For a MBP I think we're about $100 for 1GB chips, $165 for 2GB (IIRC, I'm not at work now obviously). Those are MicroWest brand chips, very good quality and lifetime warranty.

    play.com sell 4GB for £56 inc. delivery (£27.99 per 2GB Kingston module).

    That's. Amazing and I'm guessing you'll be hard pressed to find 4GB for the equivalent ($114) in a brick store in the US, especially after tax.

    I just upgraded my macbook pro to 4gb - www.overclockers.co.uk it was about £85 all in when I ordered it, thats for the 2x2gb sticks, amazing deal!
