    The new MacBooks use the newer DDR3 which is pretty expensive at the moment, even with 3rd parties.

    Looking at price/shipping/time to wait, the upgrade price at Apple is actually pretty even with everyone else.

    $140 for 4 gig of RAM is not high at all especially for DD3

    Apple's 4GB kit is $150. Much closer to 3rd parties than DDR2.

    I usually recommend 3rd party always, but the price discrepancy (add shipping) compared to Apple installing their own RAM is pretty close for DDR3 right now.

    Amazon

    Eh? I see 300 USD for the Apple store in US.

    Where do you see a kit for 150 USD?

    You may also want to look at this:

    http://www.amazon.com/OCZ-OCZ3M10664GK-PC3-8500-1066MHz-Channel/dp/B001CNR39U

    It's rated for 1333 clock (MBP runs at 1066, so kinda a waste), and it's CL9 vs the CL7 at OWC. Personally the OWC seems like a good deal, even compared to Newegg (OOS):
