    I would never buy RAM from Ebay(or anything that important---personal choice), no matter how cheap. Somethings aren't worth the risk even when some seem to always get too good to be true deals and some people(repeatedly) claim they always work. I have seen too many horror stories to tell me differently.

    I like crucial also. Go to Fry's and buy the crucial RAM. They sell it the cheapest on the internet and are very reputable. I bought 4GB of RAM from them for $40(Crucial RAM). Which is a way better deal than $22 for 2GB from Ebay and it comes from a good company. Plus it is a namebrand RAM with a lifetime warranty.

    Yep. I got in my wife's and mine. Plus this deal was first mentioned here about a month ago and a lot of people bought it. Crucial is a top brand.

    Try harder because their site is easy to navigate. Awesome store and awesome prices. They got chains all over the country and even sponsor a PGA event.

    just type crucial in the search window and you get the listing.

    This one works with macbook. You need DDR2 PC-5300 modules.
    Crucial is top notch ram and I never had issues with them before. $40 after rebate is a very good price for 4GB
