    Just got my first mac. I just don't understand the difference in the cost of a 2GB SOMDIMM from Apple and from Crucial. $500 on the Apple site and $146.99 on crucial.com!!!! I must have done something wrong right?

    From Crucial.com: 2GB, 200-pin SODIMM, DDR2 PC2-5300 memory module
    (http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=6DC2BCBBA5CA7304)

    I understand marking things up a bit, but the difference is too great for me to believe...I have to have screwed something up.

    Please help/clarify...Thx!

    You didn't do anything wrong. Apple just overprices their ram

    Apple just charge a lot. Don't buy Apple RAM :).
