    I recently bought a new/old MB pro (it doesn't have the cool trackpad feature.) I would like to upgrade the memory from 2gb to 4gb. What website do you guys use that have fair prices?

    Should I be buying special memory?

    I usually buy from newegg.com unless I find a deal on slickdeals.net

    I see now reason to buy direct from Crucial since you're paying more than their RAM sells for from third party resellers.

    For laptop memory I would suggest Newegg.com, Outpost.com, and Buy.com.

    :D same here. I just upgraded my mbp to 4 gb with G.Skill RAM (CL4)...i know its like 15 dollars more expensive than the CL5..but why not? :)

    Shipped the 26th, received the 27th. :cool: Installed the RAM, tested, and now posting this message. Newegg's CS is very good as well.

    The black spot for PQI

    I am trying to get an RMA number from them to turn in to SODIMM units (2 gig - DDR2) and they seem to be ignoring me or at best they are too swamped to respond within a reasonable amount of time. It has been since last Friday and no word.

    What good is a lifetime warranty if they are unable to honor it.

    I literally just ordered my 4gb kit from macsales.com, paid for overnight shipping. Hopefully everything works out.

    Another for Newegg. Price, delivery, selection, quality - my first choice every time.

    OWC.

    Be careful with crucial, they vary their pricing daily and depending on the machine your on can get a different cost. Many posts here concerning them.

    OWC is reliable, lifetime warranty and if you want to trade in your old RAM you get money back!

    But crucial has the better grade RAM with the faster CL. Otherwise I could just buy from micron.

    Newegg. Amazon if they ever sell what I need (especially if it's Prime compatible)

    4 gig for MBP off Crucial for like $93 shipped.

    I think there was a special that day.

    Worked perfectly, shipped fast.

    I recently ordered 2x2 GB Crucial sticks from Newegg for my new 15" 2.4GHz MBP. However, the MBP didn't recognize the Crucial RAM sticks. Sent them back to Newegg and ordered 2 from Kingston.com. Almost the same price and free 2nd day shipping via FedEx. Very pleased.
