    Hey All,

    I am in the process of purchasing a new Macbook Pro and I am running through all of the different options and features. I am thinking about upgrading from 2GB of RAM to 4GB, which according to Apple, ups the price of the computer $700.

    I am used to buying RAM from different websites for my Windows-based laptop, so I went on a scavenger hunt across the web to see if I can find chearper RAM for the macbook pro.

    What I found shocked me...What am I missing here when Apple is selling 4GB of RAM for $700 and Crucial or Newegg is selling it for $150? I am someone that thinks if something is too good to be true, it usually is.

    Any help or advice on what to look out for and why Apple prices their RAM so much more expensive then comparable RAM elsewhere on the net?
