    I read this on the Apple site, which pertains to my model: MacBook Pro: How to remove or install memory

    This has me sort of confused, it says DDR3 there, but then below it says DDR2 - does this mean that I can put DDR3 successfully, or not?

    Do I need to use SODIMM RAM?

    In either case, where is a reliable source of inexpensive, compatible RAM?
