    I'm looking at upgrading the RAM in my MPB and eventually adding an SSD, I know lots of the US members suggest OWC. But I was wondering if there are UK based places that anyone would recommend

    Thanks

    Use for RAM and SSD. Excellent quality and customer service. They also have a very good returns policy.

    +1. Often used Crucial UK for Mac RAM. Would recommend. They also have a very good online tool which helps you order the right thing!

    My brother bought 16gb of komputerbay ram from amazon. Seems fine so far and a very good price- read their reviews and you'll see they are a growing brand

    I've bought from Crucial too, and been a satisfied customer. Still am, really, but when I enquired about a memory upgrade for my white 2009 MacBook, the assistant wasn't aware that it can take more than 2 gigs of memory. He was adamant that it couldn't! I know that's what it likely still states on Apple's web pages but I was surprised at his response, nevertheless. (It can take six apparently, though some users have eight installed successfully. I'm still running mine on two without any real issues.)

    Sorry for the repetition but I also go straight to Crucial for a good experience.

    Seven times now and no dropped passes.
