    Hey everyone, for those who upgraded their UMB Ram from 2GB to 4GB, what did you do with the two sticks of 1GB ram? Were any of you able to sell it back to some vendor? I live in Vancouver, Canada so if anyone knows a vendor that buys back Apple parts such as Ram, please let me know, thanks!

    Unfortunately there's not much market for the 1GB DIMMs solely because all computers that use DDR3 seem to come with 2x1GB or come with more from the factory.

    I think some people may have sold them for a few bucks on eBay.

    I managed to sell them on eBay for £13 which I didn't think was bad considering they're effectively worthless in reality.. So yeah, eBay is the best bet I'd say.

    They won't care that you swapped the RAM out. RAM is considered a user serviceable part.

    I hold on to it because it isn't worth much and on a couple occasions, with different computers, i have used the original RAM to troubleshoot.

    That's what I always do with old RAM.

    Just keep the RAM. Better safe than sorry in cases of warranty issues. I do the same with HDDs so I don't have to worry about personal data and putting data back on after they erase the HDD.
