    Okay, on OWC RAM for my macbook was $70. I looked today and it is at $90! Surely this is an error? Can someone point me to some cheaper 4GB Upgrade options?

    I hear Crucial are good. 4GB RAM for my macbook is £40.

    http://www.crucial.com


    I haven't yet brought from them, though I plan to, just as soon as I know how much money I have!

    Hmm. I guess its possible its just weird. I have had $75 in my paypal for a while and thought I should get the RAM tonight. I guess I might have to wait a bit longer.
    @ Greatmaju: $10 cheaper at crucial. A bit better. Thanks! :)

    I wasn't sure how much cheaper it is. All I know is that crucial has an App to check the compatibility. So it should work.

    Interesting Fact, on the new Macbooks, a 4GB Ram upgrade costs £80.01
    Double the price of the RAM at crucial. Not sure why Apple charges the extra 0.01p. Although, looking at the price of the Apple Remote, its not surprising. Wonder why the remote ain't free anymore.

    Anyways. Hope you get some good cheap ram. :apple:

    Yea, every once in a while I want my remote back :(. I am going to keep a very close eye on the RAM market and order once it gets a little cheaper (if!)

    I've noticed the ram prices fluctuating more lately than I remember in the past...are the changes based on gold prices?
