    Going to buy a new mbp in the next month, and since I do a lot of video editing and some cad occasionally, figured I'd max the memory. Even with my ADC discount, the 4gb ram upgrade is a whopping $600! :eek: So I've been looking at 3rd party sites. Here's what I've come up with. Since I've only heard of crucial, other people chime in about the other sites, quality of ram?

    I've used transintl with no problems in a powerbook and I have OWC (macsales) ram in my new macbook. It appears to be working perfectly.

    I've never added memory myself before, what kind of risks would one take adding 3rd party memory?

    i've built a couple of computers and also have upgraded ram in mac and pc notebooks. It's super easy. Just touch something metal before you touch the ram and computer, if you're really paranoid, do it on a wood, or tile floor not on carpet. Don't touch the connectivity part on the ram or computer. Follow the instructions. if you're scared google "macbook ram upgrade" there are some video tutorials out there.

    $79 at Fry's Electronics for a 2 GB DDR2-667 SO-DIMM. You just have to check the ads.

    I recommend Datamem.com because the service is excellent.
