Just a quick question:
Is it more expensive upgrading RAM at the store?
No You`ll pay just three times more at the store. Not much
check out online stores
you'll get a better deal anywhere else...I am not sure if I can post links of any store...if it's forbidden..sorry I never read the rules...I always buy in OWC, do a google search, you'll have a quick idea...
At the end it's your call...do you know how to install it...are you afraid of do it ...people afraid of doing the installation prefer to pay for it...If you want to spare some bucks do it yourself there is no NASA procedure...just be careful with static...many other could explain you how to

Can I buy RAM from Best-Buy or CompUSA?
As for installing it, a friend of mine could help me.
Your problem with Best Buy, CompUSA, NewEgg or any other discounter is that they don't sell RAM that is guaranteed compatible with your Mac. Not all RAM works in Macs, even if it says "DDR2-677 SODIMM" or whatevcer the basic spec is. If it doesn't work, you have the time and expense of sending it back, and in some cases, a restocking fee if you want a refund.
There are some good vendors who do guarantee compatibility, offer a lifetime warranty, and a no cost return if it doesn't work. OWC has been mentioned, Crucial and Data Memory Systems are also recommended most often by MR members.
You'll find better deals and quality RAM elsewhere. I would recommend newegg.com there are quite a few 1GB modules on there that are sub $100 that people have had luck with in many mac models.
