    Hi..about to get upgrade to 4 GBs of Ram....opinions please....OWC has Samsung for $149 like it cause I think Apple uses it as OEM...Crucial has same amount for $109. Any preferences here? Thanks

    FWIW, when I was ordering RAM Crucial was out of stock, so I went with the OWC Samsung.

    Both should be fine-- I've had no problems whatsoever with the Samsung I bought and my new MBP runs like a top!

    Just installed 2x2gb Mushkin from NewEgg this morning and so far it has been running great. Only $70 after rebate.

    I got the Crucial memory for mine, and it is running great. Cost about 65 GBP. 70 USD sounds a very nice price though....

    I just received my 4GB from OWC - I went with the house brand.

    For those who have upgraded Ram already...Curious...what was the brand of the Ram that shipped in the MBP Penryn? The ones you took out.

    I don't know the manufacturer of the actual RAM chips, but the brand that is marketing it is Nanya... same goes for all the previous MBP I exchanged.

    Personally don't care, since I swapped in 2x 2GB Crucial chips. :D
