Thank you for all of your help on the "how important is parallel RAM" thread now I want to know how important the brand of RAM is because I am ready to buy. Here is a link from a local non-Mac oriented store in Vancouver BC. They only sell a few brands that meet the RAM specs for the MB and only Kingston makes a 1 GB stick that meets the stated specs for the MB. The link is below and I would greatly appreciate it if y'all could comment on the brand and verify that this is the appropriate RAM for my MB. If not I can look elsewhere but price-wise this seems like a good buy: http://www.atic.ca/index.php?page=LongDesc&sku=34468 Thank you so much!!
