    Hey guys,

    First of all, I'm no computer wiz, so if this is a dumb question, please forgive me. Haha. I've just bought my first macbook (2.16 GHz, 1 GB RAM, 120 GB HD) and I'm looking to upgrade the RAM to 2GB. I figured I could get a better deal then the $175 Apple charges. So, I found this site, and was wondering if theres any difference other then the brand name, between the two options:

    Thanks in advance.

    Can I make a suggestion?

    You can get 2 GB of crucial RAM for your MacBook for about $80.

    ...I just installed my crucial memory today. :)

    One says Samsung makes it and the other doesn't mention a brand? I agree, check out crucial ram.

    MemoryX (Memory ten) is a reputable seller, Mac knowledgeable, and they offer a lifetime warranty. You would be safe choosing either of their modules.

    Or check out OWC or Data Memory Systems

    Thanks
