    and where is the best/cheapest place to buy

    Thnks

    It would help if you tell us what Mac do you have... Crucial, OWC and NewEgg are popular here

    I just bought and installed 4G in my macbook (white) from OWC.Also picked up one of thier 7200 RPM drives with FW. Quick delivery, seems like a good outfit.
